The Barrens

The Barrens is a vast, largely-ungoverned region of western Corwyn.

The region is bordered on the east by Dragon Sound, on the west by the Axehead Mountains, on the north by the Frozen Coast, and on the south by the massive Anglarand River.


The region is bordered on the west by the Dwarf-realm of Orrek, but since the dwarves usually dwell in the mountains, the rolling plains of the Barrens are not desirable to them. Over time, both humans and goblins migrated here and set up small communities and either lived in harmony with the mountain-dwelling dwarves or in strong opposition to them. Much of the northern Barrens are made up of rocky foothills, with many hollowed out caverns.

These caverns are infested with goblins, and are deadly to travelers in the vicinity. Over the centuries, many wars and skirmishes have been fought between the dwarves and the goblins tribes of the northern hill caverns. It is not uncommon in this region to see war-bands of Dwarves coming out of Arkan Feyr in search of goblins.

The High Road traverses this region between the dwarven city of Arkan Feyr and the seaport of Northam.

Some regions of the Barrens are rugged and hilly, while others are made up of flat. sprawling prairies. Despite its arid nature; hardly any crops can be grown here, because of the cool, northern climate.
