Fallcrest stands amid the Moon Hills, at the waterfalls of the Nentir River. Here travelers and traders using the old King’s Road that runs north-west and south-east, the dwarven Trade Road from the east and the river all meet. In the decades since the Bloodspear War, Fallcrest has struggled to re-establish itself. The town is but a shadow of the former city; little trade passes up and down the river these days. The countryside for scores of miles around is dotted with abandoned homesteads and manors from the days of the Nerath Empire. Once again, the Nentir Vale is a thinly settled borderland where few folk live. This is a place in dire need of heroes.
