The village of Edinshion is one of few remaining populations within the cursed forest. They are protected by high walls and mysterious stone guardians that somehow keep the curse -and the creatures within- at bay.
The village is completely self-sufficient, but they still leave the protection of the walls for medicinal herbs found in the forest, and to trade with other villages.
As tradition, one is not seen as an adult until they go through the trails; which consists of spending two nights out in the cursed forest alone. It is a harsh tradition meant to transcend children into adults; but the huge amount of deaths also keep the populations of the village within a sustainable number.
