From PathfinderWiki

The Immenwood is a large forest on the Isle of Kortos just south of the Kortos Mounts and north and northwest of the city of Absalom.1


The interior sections of the Immenwood are older and wilder than its edges, especially to the east, where the necromantic emanations of the Tyrant's Grasp twist the trees.2


The Immenwood holds many active settlements, the largest of which are the towns of Meravon and Otari.1 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.2

The centaur tribes of the Immenwood are more hospitable to humans than the tribes of the Scrape, although tension between them and the city of Absalom has been quite poor recently.2

The wilder parts of the woodland are home to strange fey and a large number of carnivorous plants,3, while on its eastern border near the Tyrant's Grasp, undead creatures and cults affiliated with the Whispering Way can be found in greater number.2

Lumber industry

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 their growth has slowed to normal, or perhaps even sub-normal levels. The local lumber barons of the Kortos Consortium have been looking to druids to help boost it once again, as in its heyday, lumber from the Immenwood was exported as far as Qadira and the northern coast of Garund, greatly enriching them.12
