The Legends of Altian
The rutted King’s Road leads to the foot of a broad hill that holds the walled village of Winterhaven. The village is nestled in the southern foothills of the Cairngorn Peaks. The walls are weathered stone topped with defensive pallisades.
Small thatched homes stand around Winterhaven, each front a small piece of farmland or pasture. Beyond the farms to the west and south lie dark woods, and to the north, tall mountain peaks.
You have learned that two centuries earlier, the village was attacked by a dragon that killed many villagers, including the Lords’ daugter. A scorch mark the dargon left during the attack exists to this day on the side of Valthrun’s Tower.
An ancient keep lies a days walk from the village, and strange things have been happening there of late: screams, ghostly sounds, and eerie red glowing lights.
