Leafshade was a forest area located within the northern area of Nortander. When the Morhir left the forest of Finon Mir, they created settlements in both Eloni and Leafshade. This location marks an outpost close to the border to the Highmark near the ruined city of Dun Mora.

During the Battle of Fiara, there were hardly any elves left in Leafshade. During the Convocation the elven settlements here were obliterated by the primal elements as well as through the intense battles. And whatever remained was destroyed by the forces of the Black Fist and the elves were forced to flee to Eloni.
The future Phoenix Bearer was able to use the human monument to create an army able to push back the Black Fist's forces. With the help of Sergeant Einar of house Utran, Leafshade was liberated and the leader of the Fist, Umuruk, was killed.
To the south of Leafshade a lush forest with a huge amount of resources such as stones and iron could be found. The rune warrior used these resources to create the human rune army to attack the Black Fist.
Directly north a narrow passageway was blocking the further path. Some goblin scouts used this passage to see possible attackers and to warn their leaders.
When going even futher north the first huge camp of the Black Fist could be found within the destroyed ruins of the former elven city. Lots of orcs and goblins had barricaded themselves within the palisades of the city.
Going east there is the huge bulwark of the orcs of the Black Fist led by the troll fighter Umuruk. But when going north there is a special place with lava in which the Master of Skeleton invoked undead such as the Fire Skeleton.
There were not many surviving elves in the woods of Leafshade since most of them had fled to Eloni. Also the house Utran of Shiel had sent some fighters led in order to break the supply lines of the Black Fist.

The Corporal arrived at Leafshade to search for reinforcements for his cause. There he found out that the Bloodburn was not only fatal to humans but also had some other effects on the elves and the wildlife of Leafshade. The elves and some animals were being corrupted by the Bloodburn and even treants, the most powerful servants of Elen, were unable to resist it. Also a small fighting force of the Bane was there in order to persecute defilers within the elven settlement.
