The sprawling forests of Grentzen are made up of a bewildering array of species of plants and trees among which a wide variety of fauna thrives.
Although one may wander in the forest for weeks without meeting another soul there is a large population of hunters, trappers, farmers and gatherers who reap and protect the natural resources of the region. The people of Grentzen are known for their affinity with nature.
The small town in Grentzen, known to locals as 'Haven' but in the rest of The colonies simply as 'Grentzen Town', grew from a small trading outpost. It's buildings are renowned for their beauty and ingenuity, being built among the huge trees of the central forest on many levels from the ground to the canopy with the higher buildings being linked by rope walkways and lifting baskets.
Although the flat land around the Grentzen woodlands is very fertile there is not much in the way of farming in the open as the people of Grentzen far prefer the security and familiarity of life in the shadows of the trees, living off the plentiful fruit and game of the forest.
