The forest of haondor is a part of the huge elven forest. It is near the swamp regions to the east of this forest.
The eastern parts of the forest are used for lumberjacking, and John, the lumberjack of Hoan-Dor, is making his living there.
More dangerous are the western parts. The forest is much denser there and evil creatures dwell in these regions. Arachnos, the evil spider queen, found her lair in these parts and it is said, thateven trolls made their hideout in these parts.
However, low level High-Elves roam this forest, practicing their skills and train for real combat in the darker plains. Also well known is this zones to the druids, as one of their guildmasters made his home in the forest of Hoan-Dor.
