Bonds of Blood and Honor
The wolfswood is the largest contiguous forest in all of Westeros. Ancient and mysterious, it covers nearly a quarter of the North. Thick with sentinel trees and soldier pines, it is a dark and gloomy place. As the forest extends northward, the pines give way to oaks and haw-thorns that grow across the stony hills, where one can find quarries and mines used to provide stone and iron to Winterfell and other communities in the North. The Deepwood lies far to the west, and few if any people dwell there. For all that, the wolfswood has a sinister character, and it is far from uninhabited. Tiny communities of hunters, crofters, and woodcutters flourish in its depths, and there are even a few lords with holdings here. At night wolves can indeed be heard. The kingsroad passes through it between Winterfell and The Wall.
