Cormyr and Sembia are located above the Underdark realm known as The Deep Wastes.
Sschindylryn is a drow city under the King's Forest in Cormyr known for its use of portals to explore and conquer other parts of the Underdark. During a battle with Menzoberranzan, the portal was damaged, and it is unknown if it has as yet been repaired.
The only known way into the Underdark is through Plungepool (a waterfall). A river in the King's Forest falls into the Underdark. The falls eventually lead to an underground lake known to the drow as Daerbraun. [/sblock]
Tassarion and Erevan finds no boundries or other markers, so they believe this to be an untamed forest. But both know of an elven wood inside the Hullack Forest. (Note different coloration north of Kendall Keep on map in the RG,
that is were the elven wood is locacted.)
Ungar takes the time to draw out a ritual circle and then prays for the ability to converse with the animals of the woods. As he does so the others watch as creatures of the forest, mostly rabbits, squirrels, and song birds, come out to encircle the dwarf as he calmly envokes this ability. When he finishes, to the onlookers it seems all the animals are chirping, chittering, or chattering at the dwarf to no avail. But to Ungar he has made many friends this morning all of who are telling him all about thier lives and the forest they live in.
Only one topic of special note puts the nature cleric on guard. The animals warn Ungar of the Swamp Giant, that comes out of the bog to hunt in the southern edge of the forest. It is mean, grumpy, and eats anything it can catch.
