A rugged land of stony hills and deep gorges cut by white-rushing rivers, the Stonemarch is home to tribes of dangerous humanoids and giants. Orcs, ogres, giants, and trolls haunt the farther reaches of these barren lands.
Fortunately for the residents of the vale, the monsters rarely come east over the Cairngorm Peaks. Rumors of late have been disturbing from the few rangers and miners that sometimes travel the high mountains of a supposed troll ‘King’ that is unifying the vicious humanoid tribes of the Stonemarch.
Such a thing, if true, could spell dark disaster for the Nentir Vale and beyond and to make matters far worse is the great orc-warren known as the Fanged Jaws of Kulkoszar. This massive lair lies in the northern part of the wasteland; here the chief of the Bloodspear tribe rules over hundreds of the fierce warriors.
