The Arbor Wilds is a dense jungle-like forest in Orlais located in the southern portion of the empire.

Background Edit

The Arbor Wilds is a thick forest located south of the Dales in Orlais. Most of the forest is uncharted and unexplored and many that daringly venture this alien-like land never return. Some believe that dryads inhabit the area[1]. In fact the 'Sentinels'--Sentinel elves-- purportedly guard the land against outsiders. Many ancient Elven ruins lay dormant and abandoned within the forest, rich with ancient elven artifacts and treasures.
