The Woven Gulch is an arid canyon land, located beyond Phandalin, Rockport, and Goldcliff, as a cannon ball flies. Its main geological features are a series of dusty, dry canyons that are weaving into the ground, all made up of red clay. (They are described both as a dusty brown and made of a red clay.) The largest of the canyons has a big opening that contains a perfect circle — a bubble/temporal anomaly/forcefield.
The Director describes the area as "possibly sticky," and it is certainly a warmer climate than some of the adventurers' previous adventures, necessitating Sweet Summer Looks.
Inside the bubble is the town of Refuge, though it is invisible from the outside.
- Griffin did not have a name prepared for this area and had to name it on the fly. Alternative names suggested by the players include:
- Gucci Gulch
- The Blasted Lands (actually an area in World of Warcraft)
- The Not-Blasted Lands
- The Flavor-Blasted Lands
- The Grandd Canyon
- The Arid Wastes (actually a map in Starcraft)
