Chronicles of Embyur
the Gloamwood is a forest shrouded in perpetual darkness. At night it is nigh impossible to see your hand in front of your face, while in the day, you can barely see 10 yards away. This is fine for the Strix, the Owl-like Avian sub-race. They have made this place their home, and by building their villages high up in the redwood trees that make up the forest, they are able to avoid being detected by anyone brave or foolish enough to explore the forest.
