Valewood - description and map of the location
The above map presents Valewood, i.e. a small location that you visit for the first time on your way to Gilded Vale back from the ruins of Cilant Lis. If you want to, you can cross Valewood quickly, without engaging into any additional activities, but I recommend that you spend some time here. It is a good idea to explore the area in detail (watch out for the bear's lair where you are going to fight a slightly difficult battle) and add two new side quests to your journal.
Important places in Valewood
1. Bandit camp
Side quest: Late for Dinner - rescue cook Tenfrith who is held captive by bandits.
