The Light Forest is the southern region of the large forest near central Gavel. It is an enchanting beacon of light which is untainted by the Decay that plagues its gloomy counterparts, the Dark and Kander Forests, caused by Darkness parasites from The Realm of Dern. However, it has been hinted at that what's left of the Light Forest may not survive if the Decay continues to prosper in Gavel, and it will eventually succumb if nothing is done to prevent it. It is notable as being the residence for the immortal elves in Efelim and Aldorei, as well as a few hobbits such as Dodegar Bandysnoot that occupy a small village known as The Shiar in southern Light Forest.
The forest is also home to the Light Portal inside The Great Stump, a link between the physical realm of the player to the Realm of Light, which aswell faces problems with Darkness parasites. To the west of the forest is Pre-Light Forest, followed by Llevigar Plains. To the east are the Gylia Plains. There is also a narrow passageway to the Ocean near the Great Stump.
Points of Interest
- Aldorei Town - Arguably the most prominent city of the forest-native Elves, the lush valley is host to characteristically towering yellow and green structures above flowing rivers and waterfalls. Few Humans have been fortunate enough to witness the city, as the Elves will only permit the most deemed worthy into their Elven metropolis. Though enormous buildings dot the valley, the Elves' traditions of selflessness render it to be void of merchants and amenities. There is also an Uth Shrine in the town.
- Efelim - A collaborative settlement of Villagers and Elves in the northwest forest, Efelim is a small peaceful village residing around a pond below the canopies of the forest. It was originally founded by Elven exiles from Aldorei. Though it lacks merchants, Efelim is not completely insignificant as it is host to the Shattered Minds quest.
- The Shiar - Located in southern Light Forest, this peaceful small town is owned by Hobbits. Dozens of Hobbit holes can be found built into the hills around the Shiar. There aren't many amenities in this small settlement, apart from an Artefact Merchant who is ready to pay high prices for something truly unique.
- Light Portal - Hidden inside a massive stump at the forest's southern edge, this portal is connected to the Realm of Light, though the path to the portal has been sealed tight with a magical barrier for years.
