Flora and Fauna: Denagoth comprises a great oak forest to the east, dating back to the Blackmoor era, and another forested region to the west-mostly dead trees. The terrain throughout is rocky and difficult to cultivate. The Avien Plains, in central Denagoth, is the only area where the soil is somewhat able to produce crops and sustain cattle. The north is basically a rocky waste that gives way to swamps and frozen tundra. The animals commonly encountered are moose, elk, bears (all species, especially grizzlies), wolves (even dire wolves), wild boars, snakes and mountain lions. The land is a haven for humanoid races, and many tribes of orcs, hobgoblins, goblins, bugbears, gnolls and some ogres live in the foothills and on the highest peaks of the mountains, as well as in the forests. The Mengul Mountains are home to a vast variety of monstrous species, such as snow apes, white apes, giant bats, dragons (white and blue), harpies, giant ferrets, sasquatches, and unicorns. Black dragons abound in the swamps and forests of the entire region, unchallenged masters of the draconic race inhabiting Denagoth.
