The small town of Pinefarrow sits on the northern edge of Prydain, one of the last settled areas before the trackless expanse of the Wyvern Wastes. Few live there by choice. Remote, and isolated from the centers of power in the dukedom in more ways than one, border towns like this are populated by those who circumstance, poverty or ill fortune drove from everywhere else. In these northern highlands, land is poor but plentiful, and most residents lead humble but not impoverished lives farming or raising goats and cattle. The threat of wyverns and other marauding monsters from the north is always present, keeping the villagers alert and cautious.
