The Phostwood is located in the Duchy of Tenh north of the Yol River. It gets its name from the phost trees found here and nowhere else. The forest has become a ghastly battle ground between the beleaguered forces of Tenh and those of Iuz, the Theocracy of the Pale and varioius bandit groups which are refugees of the Bandit Kingdoms.
The phostwood trees have a phosporescent quality after they have died and begun to rot. A branch of the phostwood tree will give off a glow sufficient to light a 5 foot radius area.
