The Nentir Vale

The Nentir Vale (map) was the frontier of the Nerath Empire, the northernmost portion of the empire right up to the empire’s collapse about a century ago. Now the vale is mostly empty, with a handful of living villages and towns scattered over a wide area. Abandoned farmsteads, ruined manors, and broken keeps litter the countryside. Bandits, wild animals, and monsters roam freely throughout the vale, threatening anyone who fares more than a few miles away from one of the living settlements. Travel along the roads or river is usually safe – usually. But every now and then travelers come to bad ends between towns. What was once the borderland of the old empire has become a fallen land.
