Borderlands of Adventure
The Duskmoon Hills are a large range of tall, jagged hills to the north of Endhome, the last stretch of the [[Trader’s Way]]. Endhome patrols the Trader’s Way through the hills, but the city has no particular interest in wasting time, gold, and people to tame these wild lands. Once travelers stray from the road, they are on their own.
These high, jagged hills are lightly forested and veined with small creeks that flow down into the Penprie Forest, the Oldrock River, and the Sinnar Ocean. The hills extend for nearly fifty miles west of the map’s edge, and pose a considerable impediment to travelers from the northeast. A narrow road, called Fools Pass, winds its way through the hills and, after exiting near the Oldrock River, eventually meets up with Trader’s Way. Occasionally, merchants wishing to shorten their traveling time use Fool’s Pass to cut as much as two weeks off their journey to Endhome. But, as the pass’ name suggests, this is not always the wisest choice. In addition to the Lost City of Barakus, there are a number of small lairs in the region.
