Notable Places in Altenfell

Altencross – A sizable town populated by Humans, Teiflngs, and mostly Dragonborn. The Emperor controls the city, as it is an outpost for Empire forces, and feeds Altencross Keep.

Altencross Keep – The keep north of Altencross.

Anvil Mountains – The mountain range to the north of Altenfell and to the south of Anvil, serving as a border between those territories of the Empire.

Blackstone – The second larges city in Altenfell. Effectively the Teifling capitol. Populated by mostly Teiflings, most races can be found there, as with most large capitol cities. As the name suggests, it is carved out of the black stone of the Terrorcrown Mountains. The cult of Corellion holds much sway here, though there are temples to Erathis and Avandra, as well. The Teifling Duke Emnon Noble rules the city, as well as serving as the Teifling’s interim Counselor.

Brightmor – A fair sized town on the coast. The Human noble Peiter Frass is currently Duke. The inhabitants of Brightmore have shunned the gods for the most part, concerning themselves with the worldly, and so no cult holds much sway here. Populated by mostly Humans, a few Halflings and Elves.

The Cloaked Wood – A wooded area so names because the canopy is so thick the sun cannot penetrate.

[[“The Impassable”]] – The site of the epic final battle between the forces of Tharidzun and the forces of the Empire. The blood fell so thick that it tainted the land and those that attempt to cross the site are sapped of strength within hours.
