Betrayal Wiki

The Ridgewood is a forest in the Antaran Empire in Betrayal in Antara. It is first visited in Chapter 5.

History and Geography[]

The Ridgewood itself is shaped like a large L, bordered on the west and east by mountains, topped by a coastal strand leading west toward Grandeur and with a mountain passage leading south to Darvi.

The Ridgewood is frequented by Grrrlf due to its proximity to Grrrlfland and the Ancestral Den. Janulan hunters, traders, and villagers also travel there. Garvin Usher's house, Kaelyn Usher's childhood home, is in the south of the wood; Usher's Cave can be found in a copse on the northeast edge.

There is a broken circle of inward-facing wardstones in a meadow in the easternmost area of the wood.

  • In Chapter 5, Krrrfrrrlaaak greets the party on both the northern and southern borders of the wood until they've spoken to Garvin Usher.
  • In Chapter 5, Usher can be found in his cave in the northern part of the wood. He is not there in subsequent chapters.
  • In Chapter 5, five juvenile Wraiths haunt the wood.
  • The hostile bodies of soulless Grrrlf and other victims of the Wraiths (Bandits, Mercenaries, Chumen) roam the wood in small mobs in Chapters 5 and 7.


  • Since Usher's house is accessible in the latter part of Chapter 6, it is possible to have Aren Cordelaine and William Escobar leave better armor and other items there for Kaelyn and Raal to pick up in Chapter 7 and pick up anything left there for them in Chapter 5.
