While the name might not make sense for most of the year, in the fall the leaves of the golden larch trees that populate this area turn a bright gold color before falling. The golden trees create a passageway through the forest, exuding peace and warmth from their yellowed branches. It is the younger part of the forest, and is located at the westerly end of Auster Wood.
Access to the northeastern edge of the Ragnar Sea, this dark and dangerous beach is rocky and more, often than not, too cold to swim in. However, it is a strikingly beautiful area. With sheer cliffs kissing the shoreline and bald cypress trees hugging the shoreline, one can't argue against its stern yet proud countenance.
This sprawling coniferous forest is dominated by species such as hemlock, golden larch, cedar, and fir trees. A mostly evergreen forest, Auster is a welcome sight amongst the north, an area known for its bitter cold and snow. Auster Wood is the last place in this range where such a large forest can grow. Be careful: predators have deemed the Wood an excellent place to raise their young.
