In the northeastern region of the duchy of Toussaint, past the Blessure River, there lies the forest of Caed Myrkvid – a druidic sanctuary which, as the result of treaties signed with the duchy's rulers, enjoys full autonomy in its internal affairs.
The forest is one of the main reserves of Beauclair oak – a significant component of the local cooperage industry. With ecological balance in mind and following agreements between the Coopers' Guild and the flaminica (the leader of the circle), oak felling in the forest is currently subject to strict supervision.
In 1267, when the flaminica granted asylum to druids from Caed Dhu in Angren, fighting broke out within the sanctuary. The bandits who tried to escape justice in the forest were burnt alive in wicker hags to set an example. Since then, the borders of Caed Myrkvid have been protected by strong magical barriers and, to be honest, I would not recommend visiting this region without an invitation from the flaminica.
