From Exalted - Unofficial Wiki
A highly unusual Manse, Deathwood Keep was only finished recently. Located in a sea side swamp, the Keep was grown by extended efforts of several Wood and Earth aspected Terrestrials. The Manse is named for the swamp, which came to exist after the Drought when the lake it was part of dried up, but itself is not dead at all. The entire structure is a collection of living trees that have been grown together into the proper forms to channel the Essence of the Demesne.
