Sylvania is a fictional land of dark forests in the Warhammer Fantasy which is home to vampires, ghouls, and other beings. It is a cursed land plagued by the undead and suffers from warpstone meteorite falls. Once ruled openly by the vampire counts, the Von Carsteins, now it is ruled secretly by vampires of other lines. Treaties between the vampires and human nobles have created an uneasy peace.
To the west is Hunger Wood, the lowest populated place in Sylvaina, infested with spirits. It is a boggy marshland that sends any who loses their way to their deaths.
