Vermonstran? Kanthor's Isles? Dilis Swamp? Ballid Forest? Guhan?
Halikiv? Erontree? Winterwood? Naskorion? Tarinwood? Nida?
Belskan? Those are only the _major_ populations that we know about.
According to the Player's Book: Genertela, the western lands are
'dotted with dark woods and mysteries'. What would live in them?

You misunderstand. My proposal was that the women hate their
_mother-in-laws_ (ie the mother of the husband). To wit, they
have to put up with constant criticisms about how they are not
'good enuf' for a fit spouse for the beloved son etc. But the
women still have to be nice around them...
