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.

This small, independent freehold is located deep within the dense forest of Archerwood, and is the home of the famed Woodsmen; the legendary bowman of the Borderlands.

Long ago, the freehold was established to protect the woodland regions of the Borderlands, and Woodsmen patrol the region and keep its people safe.

The Woodsmen of Archer’s Vale are based out of the fortress of Archer’s Keep.


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 can call on more than 2,500 of these expert archers in times of war, and their loyalty and fighting prowess is unmatched by any royal army in the West.
