"The untamed lands of Scosglen are as verdant as they are deadly. Those who get lost in the woods seldom return, their screams muted by spine-chilling howls. The druids who dwell here will do anything to protect their way of life, including risking the loss of their humanity to unleash the beast within."
— Area description(src)
Scosglen is a geographic area in Sanctuary's northeast.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Home to the Druids, Scosglen is located in the northeastern part of Sanctuary. It borders the Dry Steppes to the south and the Frozen Sea in the northwest. Rugged and beautiful, it is an untamed verdant wilderness, covered by emerald forests infested by Werewolves. Those who get lost in the woods seldom return, their screams muted by spine-chilling howls. The forests are constantly covered by rain and gloomy fog, and the people of Scosglen are in a constant battle against the encroaching wilderness.
The dwellings of Scosglen consist of ancient stone towers called druid colleges, scattered throughout the land. While this form of civilization might seem crude to some, the Druids do not value urban centers in the same way as the Kehjistani.
History[edit | edit source]
The Druids entered Scosglen at around the same time Bul-Kathos united the Barbarian tribes of the Northern Steppes. Vasily gathered together a small group consisting of the tribes' greatest warrior-poets and shamans and retreated into the forests surrounding the area known as Scosglen. There, he and his people created the first of the Druid Colleges, forging a new way of life for themselves. They created a new culture and language, cutting themselves off from their Barbarian cousins and their ways, vowing not to return to the Northern Steppes until the time of the Uileloscadh Mór. With the coming of the conflict, Scosglen became a battleground between the Druids and the minions of Baal.
In the current day, the entirety of Scosglen's coastline has been overrun by the Drowned, though the inland areas have fared little better. Khazra rampage across the land, slaughtering farmers mere feet from the walls of their towns.
