The Reach

The Reach is a large geographic region of the West; located along the Pirate Coast, east of the Cairn Mountains.

Although the region is largely wild and ungoverned today; the Reach was once an active part of the ancient human kingdom of Ralas, filled with thriving mining towns, tall towers, and bustling coastal villages, but as resources dried up and the kingdom of Ralas failed, the region fell into anarchy.

After the War of the Celadon ended in 553/6, the new kingdom of Serathyr could not govern this large expanse, and simply abandoned it. Many independent settlements of humans and dwarves remain here, but they are scattered and isolated.

There are also many tribes of orcs, goblins, and gnolls in the region, making travel quite dangerous. Although the High-Elf realm of Melinarë lies to the north, there are few elves here, for they seem to shun the wide rocky plains and wastelands of this desolate region.

One spot of local interest is the ruins of the dwarven community of Khundrakar.

There are only two political entities located in this region; the freehold of Dorinvar and the Barony of Heath.

After it emerges from the Celadon Forest, the Axeway runs thru this region on its route to Skarlahn Feyr.
