The Broken Barrows are an area of hills to the south of the town of Seowyn’s Crossing in Summerlund. Many of the hills appear to be artificial mounds, and many feature ruins of ancient and mysterious architechture. The folk of Seowyn’s Crossing call the people who created the barrows the “Old Ones”, but no one has any idea who they were, or what they looked like.
Many undead wander the Broken Barrows, preying on unwary travelers, and many adventurers make a name for themselves here, slaying undead or unearthing ancient complexes. One of the only bastions of civilization in the region is the town of Firsthome, which lies partly underground. Firsthome was built in and around the area where the warforged were first discovered, and most of the town’s inhabitants are warforged themselves.
