The Brecilian Forest is a large forest in south-eastern Ferelden.
According to Sarel, the Dalish storyteller, there have been many wars and battles in the Brecilian Forest, many of which were between the elves and Tevinter mages. Sarel also mentions barbarians fighting the Tevinters as well. The existence of the elves in the forest goes far in time, even before the time of Arlathan. The death of so many supposedly tore the Veil, which separates the Fade and the real world. Its sinister air, and possessed flora, have led to many (and somewhat true) rumors and stories behind the ancient woods.
The Brecilian Forest incorporates the forest itself as well as the entrance to the ancient ruins, which is used as the Werewolf Lair. There is also a small camp here inhabited by a madman. The forest is divided into two parts: East and West. East Brecilian Forest contains the Brecilian Ruins.
