Legends of the Nentir Vale
Rising up from the foothills north of Gardbury Downs, the Cairngorm Peaks mark the end of the Nentir Vale and the beginning of the the Stonemarch. Acting as a barrier between the vale and the savage creatures of the Stonemarch to the north and west (particularly the notorious Bloodspear Orcs), this mountain range provides a modicum of shelter while also serviing as a hotbed of monstrous activity. The high mountains are the domain of the fearsome perytons and the bizarre aberrations known as mooncalves.
The denizens of the Cairngorm Peaks will be the first to know if, most would say when, the orcs of the Clan Bloodspear decide to emerge from the Stonemarch and again brutalize the Nentir Vale.
