Reign of Winter
Like in most peasant communities in southern Taldor, the people of Heldren mostly keep to themselves. Far from the politics of Oppara and ever-watchful for Qadiran aggression, Heldren goes on as it always has, as a relatively small and unimportant hamlet of farmers, herders, and woodcutters.
However, ill news has recently arrived from the Border Wood, and even stranger weather arriving with it…
A broad-minded village, the citizens of Heldren are open, friendly, and tolerant, and react positively towards visitors. With a population of under 200, Heldren isn’t exactly a location to find legendary equipment. However, thanks to a smithy, a general store, and an apothecary, it has everything a fledgling adventurer needs to begin their journey.
