The Abolethic Sovereignty
The small forest takes its name from the many fruit trees and berry bushes which make the wood a
riot of blossoms in springtime. The Blessed Woods is communal land so far as fruit-picking goes; the last week of the fourth through eighth months of the year are traditional berry- and fruit-picking time here. Count Ankley refuses to give foresting rights to anyone,trying to preserve the woods as they are. The more free food his subjects get, the bigger a tithe he can extract of the rest, of course. This is a pleasant, sunny , bright wood which offers nothing significant threats.
