Wood crafts and furniture just waiting to happen.

Forests are biomes which are generally characterized by extremely dense tree growth and large numbers of murky pools.

There are many types of forest, but the main difference between them is the particular kind of wildlife that inhabits the area. Elves build their homes, known as forest retreats, in any type of forest.

Particularly dense forests may have so many trees that, in order for wagons to arrive, you will need to cut a path to the edge of the map. Building a road along this path will prevent trees regrowing and blocking the way. There are only three kinds of trees that are specific to the alignment of the forest. These are feather trees (good), glumprongs (evil), and highwoods (savage).

The six types of forests you will find are:

  • Taiga
  • Temperate broadleaf forest
  • Temperate coniferous forest
  • Tropical moist broadleaf forest
  • Tropical dry broadleaf forest
  • Tropical coniferous forest

Taigas and tropical forests are situated in harsh climates, and acquiring water can become a challenge.
