The Immenwood holds many active settlements, the largest of which are the towns of Meravon and Otari. It also includes several mines and fortresses, both active and abandoned. The trails between the forest's towns and villages are patrolled by the First Guard's Eagle Garrison.
The wilder parts of the woodland are home to strange fey and a large number of carnivorous plants.
The center of Absalom's thriving lumber industry is the bustling town of Meravon in the western Immenwood. Wood harvested there is transported via the Deluge River to the town of Diobel, or overland to Otari and from there is shipped out to world. The growth of the trees was once supercharged by the Old Forest Aeon Tower, but since the death of Aroden more than a century ago, the local lumber barons of the Kortos Consortium have been looking to druids to help boost it.
