A map showing the forests of The Empire.

A substantial area of the Old World is covered by forests. They are ideal terrain for bandits, mutants, Forest goblins and beastmen.


Forests possess economic importance. They aren't farmland, and this results in lower taxes and populations. Increasing population will fell trees slowly reducing and pushing the forests back. War and/or plague will reduce the local population causing a gradual recovery of the forests.

Forests influence military tactics and strategy; they are a rather unsuitable terrain for cavalry (especially for heavy cavalry). Artillery is also disadvantaged due a restricted line of sight. Forests are ideal terrain for ambushes; travellers, isolated army units and sometimes even whole armies can become victims of such a fate.

The Empire

Located between The Wasteland on the west, separated by the Great North Road from the Forest of Shadows to the east and the Drakwald Forest to the south. Rumoured to hold some isolated Wood Elf villages.
  • Forest of Shadows [2]
Covering most of Ostland, the Forest of Shadows is located east of the Great North Road and north of the Middle Mountains.
  • Drakwald Forest [3]
Covering most of Middenland, the Drakwald Forest is located south of the Great North Road; infamous for the high number of local beastmen.
  • Great Forest [4]
Covering Talabecland and a large part of Ostermark, the Great Forest is located between the Middle Mountains, Nuln and Altdorf .
  • Reikwald Forest [5]
Located on the eastern bank of the Reik and south of Altdorf; infamous for the high number of local bandits who prey upon the travellers of the local road.
