Scales of War
About 20 miles north of Skull Gorge, the Dawn Way splits into the Old North Road, which leads up along the western shores of Lake Rhestin to the Endless Plains and the cities to the north, and the Dwarfroad, which climbs through the Wyrmsmoke Mountains to the lands of the west. Once this road was the preferred route for caravans traveling east-west, but the growing presence of hungry monsters in the Wyrmsmokes led to the Dwarfroad being all but abandoned. Most travelers follow a battered cart-track that parallels it 30 miles farther north or take their chances on a track skirting the Thornwaste to the south, steering clear of the goblin-infested mountains.
The intrepid travelling troupe of gaelic singers (aka us – actual name TBD) on one cloudless sky, while travelling to Overlook were attacked by half a dozen shapeshifters. Luckily for the group, Aldor was on duty, and able to spot the trouble before it was in our midst.
