The Verdant Cascades, part of the Woodland Cascades north of Kryta, draws its name from the lush flora, flowing waters, and cascading falls all around it, attracting even Jotun from the Shiverpeak Mountains to its northeastern cliffs. The Riders claim the east, the Skelk infest the north, and the Quetzal Tengu have settled in the southwestern corner.
