It's a small, wooded area north of Barona that leads straight into the destroyed lumbar town of Orlen.
 In the Story
The cause of Orlen's destruction was a Nova Wolf, the first Nova monster ever encountered in the game. It attacked Asbel during his investigations and was what caused his natural power to fight the monsters to awaken.
 Later On
Later during the game, the party has the ability to go back to the woods and the ruins of the town to fight Bryce again as part of a sidequest.
- Before it was destroyed, Orlen had a population of about 50.
