Gnarled Forest is a pirate-themed world, which can be accessed from Nimbus Station. Earlier, Gnarled Forest featured classic-style pirates and Maelstrom Ninja, but it was redesigned to fit the darker, Maelstrom-invastion-style worlds. However, a lot of the NPCs are still modeled after classic pirate minifigures. It also features Keelhaul Canyon Racetrack, which went through a change in late Beta, removing a shortcut path. Gnarled Forest Survival is also located here, but was removed at the end of Alpha. Pirate Mechs also were an enemy in Pre-Alpha, but were later scrapped for Pirate Stromlings and Admirals.
