Archer's Vale is a large freehold loyal to the realm of Alveron, located deep within the Archerwood Forest in the Borderlands, at the base of the Saugreth-Muir Mountains.

The capitol of the Freehold is the large village of Arovia. This dense woodland region is home to the famed Woodsmen, whose skill with the bow and loyalty to Alveron is legendary. The freehold also protects the neighboring dense woodland region of the Shambling Wood to the south, as well as much of the Borderlands region. The Woodsmen of Archer’s Vale also garrison the fortress of Archer’s Keep, located on the eastern border of the Freehold’s territory.


The Woodsmen of Archer’s Vale are among the finest archers found in the West, and are more than a match for most orcs and brigands roaming the region. The Baroness of Archer’s Vale can call on more than 2,500 of these expert archers in time of war, and their loyalty and fighting prowess is unmatched by any royal army in the West.
