Capoe is a large hamlet seven leagues south-southeast of Venza in the Tenebrous Wood. It is most easily reached by traveling just past Baron's Cross on the Eastern Trade Road to a narrow, overgrown road that heads southeast into the Tenebrous Wood. Eighteen miles down that track the woods open enough for a small village and narrow strips of extremely fertile farmland.
The residents of Capoe, mostly human and halfling, are considered by most to be backwoods, backwards, and overly superstitious. They are, however, generous and friendly, freely opening their homes to strangers since Capoe is too small to support an inn. Wooden houses cluster close round a small village green and gardens and fields stretch out to the trees though the feel is that the forest crowds the fields and closes in on the town.
A narrow trail south of Capoe leads to Avellino, a village a days walk or longer from Capoe. A trail into the woods to the east leads to the settlement's graveyard.
