Red Hand of Doom
The Nerathi Heartlands
Northwestern Oerik is the heart of once was Nerath, the last great human empire. In the ancient past this territory was part of the tiefling empire of Bael Turath. Around a hundred years ago Nerath fell and disintegrated into numerous petty fiefdoms, including those of Nentir Vale, Blackfall Vale, and Elsir Vale. Further west, beyond the Stonehome Mountains lays the Orcish Wilderness, an untamable strip of forestland that borders the vast Sunset Sea and is home to a number of orc tribes.
