Located just south of Hemphill is the forest of Cave Cove, once a storage ground for brigands and pirates. Years before hand the water ways wound through the hills around Hemphill and allowed for a brisk trade in contraband goods. Once the river ways dried up or was diverted by the engineers constructing Goldcroft then this trade died out. It was this forest where they took their flat bottom barges and used to store their ill gotten gains. Now the caves are home to all manner of beasts who stay fat on adventurers searching for the lost booty of the river pirates.
