Location. Located in the mid to lower regions of the Southern Sarvonian Continent the Auturian Woods are home to the Tethinrhim elves. The Woods lie west of the human city of Marcogg, east of the Gulf of Maraya.
A thick and very green forest almost mystical in its appearance.
trees are located throughout the woods in patches indicating that there is
(or was) a small pack of
Tethinrhim elves there.
Almost in the centre of the Auturian Woods is its capital called the Ria, which is also the name of their Sovereigns living quarters. Strategically located about the outskirts of the woods are small settlements, which are bases to keep an eye on who and what enters and who or what leaves the Woods. The Ria is the most populated and guarded place within the entire woods. Housing the Sovereign and his or her family, along with the Tethinrhim's place of Government.
The middle level of the forest is a mixture of growing trees and tree trunks, and vines reaching towards the ground level. The vines are also wrapped about some of the tree trunks and are almost covering some of the trunks totally. The top level is like the bottom level "teaming" with life, protecting the elves that live in the canopy level. The trees are producing a lot of leafy coverage in order to effectively hide the communities in the trees.

One could easily become lost within the Auturian Woods with its magical beauty
and green charm. The Woods are full of a natural beauty that only
Avá Herself could have created
as the Tethinrhim say.
There are no visible walking tracks imprinted on the ground as the Tethinrhim make their way about in the treetops or take varying routes to their destinations. The ground varies from grassy patched to soil exposed areas. The foliage along the lower levels of the Woods is in clumps about the base of the various trees, generally having at least three different types of eatable food in each plant.
People. People are allowed to pass freely through the outer areas of the Woods, however the closer that they get to the Ria the more they are watched by either normal Tethinrhim members or Kaierian Warriors depending on the size of the group travelling.
Flora. The Auturian Woods is one of the easiest woods in which to find something to eat, even if you dont know what youre looking for. The woods have very fertile soil, there is a lot of vegetation growing within the soil. Wild life within the forest is plentiful as the Tethinrhim generally keep to a diet of various plant life to sustain their diets. Such plants include the Douch Nut and the Kies. Arv can also be found within the Auturian Woods, however this is kept under strict growing control as it tends to florish like all plants do with its rich soils.

Myth/Lore. The Woods are practically teaming with life with the plant and animal life within the woods it almost gives the onlooker a feel that the Auturian Woods has its own life spirit. Small rays of sunlight peak through the tall thick trees, creating a misty effect along the ground level. As parts of the Woods are close to the Gulf of Maraya it is rather often that there is a fog going through the western areas. Some say that the spirits of those who lost their lives in the great fire remain to this day not haunting but protecting their beloved Woods.
