A large area of forest in the Greenbelt. Splitting the Stolen Lands in half, the Narlmarches—or Narlmarch Woods, as they are sometimes known—sprawl across the region’s lowlands, hiding deep ravines, craggy hills, and languid streams beneath its houghs of oak, heech, and rushleaf. Within range proud herds of elk, rivercats (a mossy-furred breed of bobcat), black bears, boars, brush thylacines, and numerous breeds of especially large rodents. More unusual creatures are also believed to inhabit the forest. The ruins of numerous forgotten bandit hideaways also molder within the Narlmarches, leading to countless tales of lost riches and trap-laden tombs of fantastic treasures. The few humanoid inhabitants of this area are mostly trappers and hunters, but given the ease of hiding in the area and lack of lawful authority, it is also a haven for bandits. The defeat of Kressle has diminished the threat a little, but her superior, the Stag Lord, is still at large somewhere in the Kamelands to the east.
The river Thorn flows from the Narlmarches down into the Kamelands; a tributary near the forest’s edge features the camp of the bandit Kressle, now abandoned.
