The Borderlands and Beyond
The borderlands are those lands that lie north of the Realm to the lands of song. They end at Dwarf-held mountains at either side, and contain within isolated and fortified city-states, footholds held by foreign chaos-aligned powers, vast tracts of wilderness, hordes of savage, hostile creatures and above all the lure of treasures of lost civilizations hidden and guarded behind earth and stone.
- Many young souls seek fortune there but few live long enough to profit from glory or spoils.
- Just beyond the northern edge of the Realm lies Naword Keep.
