The Blackwood is a dense forest sprawling across much of the area East of the Green Hollows and North of the Killridge Mountains. This is also the location where Janner was blindplopped for his 12th birthday. Located in the heart of the Blackwood is Clovenfast, and an entrance into the Castle Throg. Sentient species that inhabit the forest include: Cloven, Ridgerunners, and temporarily Fangs. Artham Wingfeather spent some of his days after the melding in Throg in the Blackwood. He there found the first well, but refused to drink it; saving it all for his brother, Esben.
