This wiki contains spoilers for all stories of Critical Role. This includes the story for unaired episodes of The Legend of Vox Machina, as it's based on the first campaign of Critical Role from 2015-2017.
The Parchwood covers the valley beneath the Alabaster Sierras, split by the rushing Mooren River Run. The foliage of the forest is thick, and many pathways that traverse it are overgrown. The forest is often buffeted by cold wind and snow and covered in thick fog.
Locals tell stories of many dangerous inhabitants of this forest, from specters of lost travelers to wandering blights and centaurs, and even rumors of a pack of werewolves.
The valley where the Parchwood Timberland now stands was created by the forces unleashed in a cataclysmic battle between Pelor and Tharizdun during the Calamity.
