Knotwood Hills is a location in the western Amaranthine which is named after the dead, gnarled trees that dominate the landscape.

Background Edit

The hills in this location are inhospitable and barren, in striking contrast to the fertile farmland of the rest of the Arling of Amaranthine. Violent rock slides on the craggy slopes of the Knotwood Hills have claimed untold lives over the years; there are also stories of sinkholes appearing in ground that seemed stable moments before. The locals believe that a section of the Deep Roads runs under the hills which is in fact true. The Hills are on top of old tunnels which are leading to the Great thaig of Kal'Hirol. However the structural integrity of those tunnels is rapidly deteriorating. Few men are brave enough, or foolish enough, to investigate the truth.[1]
