The Depths of Dullahan's Deep
The Arkhosian Forest lies in the far northern reaches of Norlund. Its most northern edge borders with the Crater Bay. The forest is mostly made up of coniferous trees and plants, with oaks, maples, and elms scattered among them. Most animals and creatures that inhabit cold forests can be found here, as well the Arkhosian Forest is home to sub-arctic versions of Spiders and Ettercaps. Monstrous Spiders, ranging in size from Small to Colossal, exist in huge numbers within the conifers of the Arkhosian Forest, these Spiders are statistically the same as those in the Monster Manual except they have the Cold keyword. Large sections of the forest are draped in thick webs spun by millions of these creatures. Tribes of Ettercaps, also the same as those in the Monster Manual except with the Cold keyword, make there homes in and among many of these spider infested areas. The area where the forest now grows was once the site of an enormous Arkhhosian city, ruins from this lost time still dot the forest and are often used as homes for the numerous creatures that live here. As well the Arkhosian Forest is home to the Drow, they make there homes both within the ruins of the Arkhhosian Empire and in subterranean burrows built beneath the spider infested trees of the forest. The Arkhosian Forest has snow fall for nearly 9 months out of every year, in some areas along the edge of the bay snow lies on the ground year round.
