The Wolde is a patch of evergreen, aspen, and brush covered hills and broken ground between two extending arms of the Red Mountains. It covers maybe 25 miles from north to south and more than 50 miles from east to west. To the north, south and west it is bordered by the steep and dangerous peaks of the Red Mountains, and to the east by the dark expanse of the Wild Wood.
There are three main human settlements in the Wolde. White Rock, Garnhold, and Redfort.
