Hard under the Cairngorms at the west end of the Nentir Vale lies the remote village of Winterhaven, surrounded by a few miles of farmland and pastures. Built in the shadow of the Keep on the Shadowfell during Nerath’s height, this village stands as a feeble light at the edge of civilization.
Population: 950. Most villagers are farmers and herders who live outside the walls, and most are human.
Government: Ernest Padraig, the Lord of Winterhaven, is descended from the noble family that ruled the area under edict of the old empire.
Defence: The Winterhaven Regulars are a core group of ten soldiers who perform guard and police functions in and around the village. Padraig can muster a force of about fifty civilians, given a day’s notice, to supplement this tiny force if the village is threatened.
Inn and Tavern: Wrafton’s Inn serves as the public house for the region.
Supplies: Bairwin’s Grand Shoppe, market square.
Temple: Sister Linora offers sacrifices to the entire pantheon when called on to do so, but she is a devotee of Avandra and most villagers offer their prayers to the god of luck.
