Reign of Winter
The Border Wood
The Border Wood stands on the border between Taldor and Quadria, It was here that many intense battles were fought during the Grand Campaign between Taldor and Qadria. The rangers of the High Sentinel Lodge have long kept a presence in the Border Wood patrolling the environs and ever wary for Qadrian invasion.
The long but tension riddled peace between Taldor and Qadria, however, has siphoned off many of the best troops form the High Sentinels of the Border Wood. Recently the High Sentinels have seemingly all been killed by an unexpected alliance between bandits and the cold-fey of the north who have suddenly appeared in unexpected numbers within the Border Wood.
In addition, despite its geographic location and it being summer a large swath of the Border Wood is seeing winter conditions including heavy snowfall.
