The gaming group that played in this game session started out in the city of Emerald Firth.
They traveled up the valley of the Never Dry River. The started noticing high cliffs and very little dirt. Then the rock were seen, scree. The river started rising. They scrambled up the river valley walls, just past the cliffs, and escaped drowning.
No stores, etc. so far. When I first ran this I told the players to just use the players’ handbook.
