The Skaldwood is a copse of trees that sits near to but outside of the Varisian city of Korvosa. The Skaldwood is most well known for an encampment of Shoanti who live there, trying to bridge the gap between those Shoanti who continue to live in the traditional ways and those who have tried to settle in Korvosa itself. The Skaldwood is sacred to the Shoanti and they are allowed to live there without interference as long as they do not harbour Shoanti raiders or fugitives.1
