Monsters of the Great Woods (Lyonesse)

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”.

There are three significant areas of “Great Woods” (Cymry: “Coed”, pronounced “Coyd”) in Lyonesse: Snowdonia in the north, Fforest Fawr in the southeast (Aberhonddu town is roughly the northern edge), and Cantre’r Gwaelod in the west.

Sizes, as the say, are relative.
