The Endless Woods is a seemingly never-ending stretch of woods where all the fairy tales take place.
The wood itself is a dangerous and dark place of eternal night, filled with shadows, monsters and danger. The paths through it are thin and almost non-existent. Many who enter the Woods unprepared are never seen again, falling prey to the hungry boars, scavenging imps, cranky spiders, the occasional man-eating tulip and other such dangers. The Endless Woods are also home to wondrous and legendary creatures as well as humans who live alongside magic.
The Woods hold vast, magical lands and kingdoms, deep oceans and dry deserts. Travelling through the Endless Woods takes ages and no one has ever reached its end since they only discovered new undiscovered kingdoms and locations.
However, there are places that exist outside the Woods. The village of Gavaldon is so far the only place that exists outside the world of fairy tales and is known to the people of the magical world as Beyond the Woods. The two worlds are separated by a magical barrier. The people from Beyond the Woods are called Readers since they only know about the Endless Wolds from stories and Fairy Tales.
The Endless Woods relies on stories and the belief of Readers to stay alive. A fairy tale cannot last too long or the world will start to die and the sun will slowly melt. If the sun completely disappears, the Woods will darken and the world will end unless a story reaches The End.
