Special features

Your foot gets caught in thick, tall undergrowth and you lose your balance, falling inelegantly.

This uses Adventuring.acrobatics.balancing skillchecks as proved by TM.

Wolf trails run through Skund, with lots of wolves on them.

Pekan Ford is in the northern part of it, and the hedge wizard outpost is nearby along the road to the northeast.

The grflx caves are near a lake in Skund, along trails west of the main road.

Squinty Jeb is a bit west of the main road near the south end of Skund.
