From back cover: Once named Greenwood the Great, the treeland then harbored starlight and song under its arching eaves. Only the northern woods now retain memories of the old splendor, and the elven magic guarding their borders has grown fey and perilous. The dread Necromancer inhabits Dol Guldur in tangled southern Mirkwood, and the entire forest cringes from his Shadow. Twisted hemlocks and soot-black webs shelter his minions and fell wild creatures.
