King’s Copse

King’s Copse is a small birch and maple forest east of Nox. The forest belongs to the King of Xoria, thus hunting and wood gathering within the forest are forbidden without the permission of the king. Due to this the forest maintains a population of large animals and a dense underbrush. A community of dryads lives within the woods and enforces the king’s rule by killing trespassers.

The King’s Copse was where Queen Anajakaze was raised in secret out of Hera‘s sight. The dryads brought her up and trained her to be a queen and a warrior. The forest was invaded by Queen Chrilethia of the Amazons. Anajakaze assassinated the intruding queen and took over the Amazon nation at the subsequent tournament of arms.
