The "Heartland" is the most commonly used name to describe the densely wooded region in the middle of Enderal. It is home both to Ark, the majestic capital city of the country, as well as to several highly-travelled
trade routes connecting Enderals villages and trade-posts. Awry oaktrees and tall scot pines provide for a dense vegetation, and both small and big rivers weave their way through the winding thickets. From time to time,
the daring traveller might find an old crypt or an old ruin, the latter most likely an abandoned trade post from the times of the "Isolation".
