though it can seem that way at times, not everyone in elestis lives in the town of iscantir. the largest village besides it lies within the darkwood forest, and is home to many different types -- humans, elves, wizards and witches, fauns, and more. as it's nestled in the woods, naturally the homes are either made of wood or placed in the trees themselves. it's actually quite a thriving place -- the homes are decent sized for the location, there's enough space in this clearing for the buildings, and the homes in the trees have been fortified with magic. at the center is a large structure where the village people can gather to speak about things, discuss and debate, or simply determine the hunting and gathering schedule for the next week. many people in iscantir look down upon the darkwood village, but at the very least its occupants do know how to work well together.
