The stone march moor
Stone march moors
The Stone march moors are a mixture of moorland and high rocky outcrops. The winds on the moors are bitter and there is little in the way of vegetation other than grass, heather and other shrubs. The only reason for civilised folk to go into the moors are the excellent horses and ponies, along with raiding the remains of Hammerfast. On the moors there are several Orc tribes, along with giant kin and even worse in the ruins of Hammerfast. The most Famous of the Orc’s is the Shaman Twinfangs who maintains a peace between the tribes and stops them from destroying each other or uniting under one leader. His reasons for this are unclear, however he has been known to talk to members of the heavily armed and armoured caravans that travel along the road to the east of Oak Vale.
On the moors the shattered ruins of Hammerfist still sits now infested by monsters, the origonal dwarven inhabitants driven out years ago by an attack from within by Drow. Remenents of this city still exist under the moor. Some are seperated from the main city bu cave inns, whilst others give access to the underdark.
