Nochtnamen at dusk.

The Nochtnamen (or "darkness/night bringing") forest is the largest forest in Ethaeria. Due to the density of the foliage, there are large expanses of it that are steeped in shadow almost constantly. At night, the forest can become unnavigateable. Due to this, many travelers opt to go around the forest rather than through, although a few brave souls will choose to venture into the forest - some never to be heard from again.
