Long before the establishment of the Orchish Empire, this vast forest stretched into Hells Womb. Gwaeldior was the southern tip of this forest. It was home to the wood elves of Lorthrindal, centaurs, and numerous fey creatures. In the Arduous March (1041 - 1096), the Githirmil left Hells Womb for southeastern Grashakh. Entering lands claimed by the Lorthrindal, so began the War of Nárfaltuin (1048 - 1130).
