The Screeching Woodlands is a marine area with multiple small islands and Sea Stacks. The Southern-most island has a relatively flat area with some sort of man-made circular wall structure. The Northern-most island is the residence of a Screaming Death. There is golden grass on all the land masses, as well as deciduous trees with orange, gold, yellow, and red foliage. The seas are clear and the sea bottom can be seen in some areas.
The Screeching Woodlands are the last section of the Wild Woodland. A wild Screaming Death resides in this forest. The dragon acts as a 'big boss' that the player must defeat in battle in order to advance in the game.
The Screeching Woodlands is also a region in the "Barbaric Back-Country", and is the last section the player encounters after the area is occupied by the Dragonroot Company.
