Elkforest is the name of the wood in Ghent, Havish. It is the home of Machiel, caithdein of the realm of Havish and direct advisor to High King Eldir. The forest is bounded to the east by the Storlain Mountains, and to the north by an unnamed river. The town of Deal sits in the center of the forest, away from any trade roads.

A waterfall named Lind'stair exists in the free wilds here along the border between Elkforest and the lowlands.
