The Wending Wood is an area of forested slopes and lush greenery, divided by the trade route known as the Pilgrim's Path -- named for the faithful devotees of Andraste who walk that very road to reach the City of Amaranthine, and who have left ancient relics scattered about the wood to honor Andraste and the Maker.
The wood was once a home to an Avvar tribe of the Alamarri, and location of one of the battles between the Magisters and the barbarians in the ancient times. The wood was a sacred place of an Avvar god known as Uvolla.
Since then, for centuries the wood was known as a place of breathtaking beauty and tranquility, but things have changed in recent months: a clan of Dalish elves has set up camp within the wood, and their proximity to human villages is making the locals uneasy. Even worse, roaming bands of darkspawn have been seen in the wood, undoubtedly gathering for some nefarious purpose. For now, the people of Amaranthine can only pray that whatever troubles the Wending Wood passes soon.
