The terrain is your classic marshland. The ground is largely flat, wet, and boggy and covered in knee-to-thigh high sedge. There are frequent patches of thicker heath that is up to waist high, and occassinally there stands what remains of a long-dead tree pointing skyward. These are skeletal trucks with a few branches remaining, mostly 2 to 4 times as tall as a man. Here and there are haphazardly scattered patches of slightly higher (and drier) ground, reaching perhaps a man-height in elevation.
Even though the weather is clearer today, there is yet a thin veil of mist throughout the fens, so visibility is limited to a couple of hundred yards, at best.
