Murmurwoods is a region in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer. It is the location of the Temple of the Sun.


Murmurwoods is the location of the Temple of the Sun, chosen due to the large number of light creatures that inhabit the area. A small pilgrimage settlement, almost not large enough to be called a village, has collected at the base of the Temple Mound. Patrols by local Priests of the Sun keep the more dangerous beasts at bay.
