Legends of the Nentir Vale
Kethmaar is a large village situated on the road that joins the Trade Road near Thunderspire Mountain and Harkenwold. It was once a much larger community, as well as being the main breeder and supplier of horses for the Nentir Vale. However the town was all but destroyed in The Bloodspear War and of the several noble families only House Vistana – the only nobility with a stone keep – survived. House Vistana is well regarded by the current villagers as Lord Amasa’Ra’s father had crammed as many townsfolk and breeding horses as he could inside the keep walls during the orc attack to keep them safe.
These days the main export of Kethmaar is granite stone blocks from a large quarry, and fast, expensive horses, all owned by House Vistana. With Fallcrest also breeding horses, Kethmaar found themselves unable to compete with the larger town in breeding common horses for everyday use and chose to specialise in horses for nobility, bred for speed and war.
The Lord of Kethmarr is Amasa’Ra Vistana. He and his family live in the keep belonging to his family that protected the peope of Kethmaar some 90 years ago.
Kethmaar is situated near some hills from where the townsfolk cut stone.
