The Blessed Hills

These low hills enjoy a great deal of rain fall, and possess a large number of small lakes and streams. Wild sycamore grows here in abundance. They are gentle hills, offering plenty of refuge and safe, easy travel. Their great disadvantage lies in the griffons who regularly hunt the range.

They are named for an early sainted priest, Airaboth, whose tomb lies in the hills. He stood against the tide of darkness during the early days of Unklar's conquest and fell with iron in his hand. His body was laid to rest beneath a great stone and marked with a simple rune. Tis said that those noble of heart and spirit whose bodies are laid upon the stone, may enjoy resurrection.

~The Codex of Aihrde
