Echo Wood Campaign UTC
East of Thornkeep Falcon’s Hollow is perhaps better described as a scattered collection of several ramshackle
communities rather than a single town. Enclaves of wealthy lumberlords sit
comfortably on the Perch, looking down at numerous ghettos of indigents, downtrodden
lumberjacks, religious zealots, and desperate settlers who in turn gaze across their
fences with suspicion and distrust.
A teeming monster-fraught wilderness surrounds the hollow. Danger lurks just
beyond the treeline, and most of Falcon Hollow’s more canny residents realize the
settlement will most likely be savaged by some horrid monstrous threat sooner rather
than later. Until that day, the lumberlords do their best to snatch as much darkwood
from the vale as they can. It’s only a matter of time before their heedless ravaging of
the wilderness around the town draws the notice of a fierce guardian.
Meanwhile, adventurers flock to Falcon’s Hollow but most vanish into the shadows of
Darkmoon Vale, never to be seen again. Even more lose their nerve after their first brush
with the unholy terrors lurking in the night and end up slaving away at the cutyards or
selling their swords to lumberlords who always need more unscrupulous ruffians to
keep the rabble in line.
