The Realm of Tantoräc

Over half of Tantoräc is covered in forest while mountain ranges and lakes dominate the rest, leading many to remark that this is the realm which is the most untamed. With outlaws and brigands stalking the paths and roads through Greywolf Forest it is easy to see why. Decades of war with the neighbouring realm of Varahil have left Tantoräc devoid of any discernible military force and economically bankrupt.

The Town of Barrenstone

Sat among the Verínwrath Mountains Barrenstone is a small town consisting of fifty or so granite dwellings. What was once a vibrate mining community has long dwindled ever since the gold veins ran dry. Now the townsfolk eke out a basic existence on the slopes of the mountains while hoping that someone of something revives their fortunes.

Tantoräc used to be one of the strongest of the Northern Realms but decades of war with the neighbouring realm of Varahil have left it militarily weakened and economically bankrupt. Once the envy of the other ruling houses the might of the Thúrlom Royal Family has waned and the hold they have on the throne is now precarious at best.


The majority of Greywolf Forest lies within the realm of Tantoräc and bandits and outlaws operate from within its borders. Robbing the merchant caravans that stray too close to the forest these outlaws plunder at will before disappearing back into the woods. All attempts to purge them from the forest have so far been unsuccessful.
