Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia
"He’d heard a bush had eaten a soldier, last night, swallowed the man whole when he went to relieve himself. There was hardly a piece of the Waning Woods that was not out to kill everything it saw."
―Anaxares, Hierarch of the Free Cities[1]

The Waning Woods are the forest surrounding Refuge full of monsters and dark creatures out to kill whatever ventures inside it.

Fae are more likely to show up here than in other places of Calernia.[2] [3]
