A lengthy forest in East Anor that runs from the Lake of Storms south towards the Hellsteeth Mountains. Infamous for being infested with giant spiders. The elves tried to settle there millenia ago, only to be pushed out by the spider horde. Brann Takarog trudged through the forest in the third century, killing the legendary spider Jagokein and creating a path through the wood to Desek. Over the years the power of the spiders has waxed and waned, and currently it is said that they are at their peak. Desek has reported more spider attacks in their city than ever before, and the soldiers guarding the King’s Road in Spiderwood itself claim to have seen a giant spider roaming about on several occasions.
