Victory in the Vale
Winterhaven is a small town on the King’s Road in Elsir Vale. Its walls house a collection of just less than a thousand souls, huddled together in remote safety from the untamed ruins and wilderness that surround them. The vast majority of the populace is human, though exceptions do exist, and Wrafton’s Inn often sees travelers of many races.
Lord Padraig is the town’s leader, a man to whom the humble farmers and traders of the community gladly doff their hats. He does his best to keep the villagers safe and comfortable, the stores full, and the volunteer militia ready.
There is no formal military force beyond those who opt to watch the walls out of a sense of civic duty, so when kobold bandits began appearing on the road, hunting them down was beyond Winterhaven’s power. Many villagers even remained largely unaware of the threat, as the kobolds never bothered the town itself.
