E’m Dorei used to be a thriving part of the forest. Then six months before the Darkest Night the Black Knights had returned to take on the Ramsalon Wood Clan It was here the Knights and the Wood Clan with their allies engaged in a terrible battle. However the battle was a trap, as the Black Knights had a poison in their blood and on their weapons that inflicted whatever they wound or bleed upon a horrendous and lethal disease. It even spoiled the land, and it seemed no magic or mundane means could reverse it. Eventually the Wood Clan and their allies managed to hold out until the Black Knights retreated, but the damage had already been done. A few thousand were dead and the very ground had become infected.
The Wood Clan buried those that died in the battle in the ground since those bodies would infect anything else they touched. When they had returned the next to to finish the burial they had discovered a Weeping Tree growing from the grave of a paladin that had perished during the fight. The ground around it seemed slightly restored, which gave the Wood Clan hope that perhaps the spirits of their dead may one day undo the damage of the Black Knights.
Since then E’m Dorei has become the burial grounds for the Ramsalon Wood Clan, their allies, and other denizens of the forest.
The land is mostly barren with the remains of dead or dying trees and scorched looking rocks dotting the landscape. Most of the ground are shades of browns and grays, and nothing seems to grow.
E’m Dorei extends a bit past the original battle site, as over the years no changes seem to come to the infected lands so the Wood Clan put protections around the center to help keep people from accidentally wandering in and spreading the infection. The outer ring of E’m Dorei has a the graves circling around the center area. The headstones of those graves create a makeshift wall between the two sections, and the stones extend down deep into the ground. The is a stone inlaid walkway that divides the graves and encircles the whole of E’m Dorei. On the east side on the border of the center and outer circle another Weeping Tree had appeared at the site where Alanonal James died fighting a stalker prime.
At the very center is where the burial grounds begin, with the paladin’s weeping tree standing as a brilliant beacon of hope. This area can only be accessed with a guide to help keep the infection from spreading until it can be reversed. There are rows of gravestones of all types of stones marking the final resting place of those laid there. There are stone pathways between the rows of graves.
