When you attempt to move to Holy Wood in the lands of the Crescent Moon tribe, you are opposed by the forest itself; vicious thorny vines reach out, trap and bleed your troops. In the ensuing brief skirmish, you fail to kill any of the enemy before you withdraw from the battlesite. Raven Shrike suffer one casualty.
Oh look - mint green scales. Guess you picked up some of Sian's braves on The Fury of the Land, your awakened thorn bushes.
The forests of Holy Wood are dangerous to all, not just the invaders; even the Onontakha, used to being masters of moving across the land, lose precious braves to the vicious thorns hidden within.
