The Pale

The Pale is a dangerous and uncivilized region of the North.

The regional borders of the Pale are: the Warlock Mountains to the north, the Borderlands to the south, the Mystwood to the east, and the Athlan Myr to the west. This region is essentially ungoverned, and can be a dangerous place for travelers and adventurers alike. Only along the eastern shores of the Athlan Myr do small scattered human communities exist.

Most of these settlements are poor and corrupt. There are some Wood-Elves that still dwell here, in the shadow of their lost civilization to the east.

The Pale is constantly threatened by marauding bands of orcs from Drakhara, who travel through the Mystwood to raid and pillage the region. In years past, the kings of Ammarind would send soldiers to drive these orc raiders out, but that has not happened for many years.

The Freehold of Shoredale is located here, along the eastern shores of the Athlan Myr. The Independent settlement of Thrushmoor is located here as well.
