village, population 977

Nesstled in the southern foothills of the Cairngorm peaks lies a small village that grew up under the protection of the Keep on the Shadowfell around two hundred yeays ago. It lay on the outskirts of the Nerath empire. Now the Keep lies in ruins but the village lives on as a small beacon in a dark land.

Today most villagers have never traveled beyond the village vale. The majority of the population are farmers, though within the walls are found vairous craftspersons and their shops. The old Kings Road leads east to the closest settlement five days away, the town of Cranes Ferry. The majority of news and trade in Winterhaven comes by this route.


The Lord of Winterhaven is Earnst Padraigand he is descended from the noble family that ruled the area under edict of the Lord of Nerath.
