Though the Living Forest is named for the trees that seem to come alive, it is in fact a place of death. Stories of moaning trees that devour the flesh of unwary travellers spread throughout the realm. It is said that those who are consumed by the forest, become the forest; their tortured faces etched upon the trees. Shao Kahn learned long ago the perils of sending troops through this treacherous wood. Many of his best soldiers have been lost to its entangled foliage. The deadly nature of the Living Forest is likely why it has remained unspoiled for millennia.
