The quests in the Balewood offered a lot more insight into Núrzum and why he has wreaked wintry woes on Wildermore. I like the Ents: they're noble in their mission to protect the forests; they're patient with their enemies and wayward friends and don't rush in to get revenge or give punishment; they're level-headed and listen to others' opinions then weigh up their options to find the best solution. I'm not so keen on the huorns though - tripping over their roots by accident then getting whacked across the back of the head with a branch and looking back to see a grim visage in the trunk as the tree pulls itself out of the ground to chase you angrily - yeah, they're not as reasonable as the Ents.
