When such a tree falls it would be accompanied by a minor earthquake...

Races include halflings, giants, minotaurs and centaurs. The halflings live in the forests - presumably each tribe claims a tree and defends it from all other tribes. The other races live on the plains where the more civilized centaurs face the barbaric minotaurs and the savage giants heads-on.

So how would you run adventures on Loren'dil?
Eh... I'd probably set up some big campaign arc about a necromantic blight afflicting the trees and the quests to figure out how to stop it. Given my players, they'd be a mix of halflings and centaurs. Probably have the blight be a false-flag operation conducted by someone trying to spark a war between the woodsfolk and the plainsfolk for Reasons.

Also might lean into the colossal trees bit and go with actual mountain-sized trees, and use a couple of them as living cities for the halflings. I like my fantasy to be pretty fantastic sometimes.
