The city of the Bearlord lies of the Wooland Realm, deep within the Dyrewood. Surrounded by meadows, its imposing giant palisades provide protection against anyone foolish enough to tempt an assault. The Five Trees that stand inside the walls are gargantuan wonders of nature, the largest being the Great Oak, which houses Brackenholme Hall high within its branches. Although trade does make its way via the Dymling Road, the principal purpose of the city is as a stronghold for the Bearlord's military forces and as a sanctuary for the good people of the Dyrewood.
