The Highland is a huge swath of northern Varis covered in snow-capped rugged mountains, thick evergreen forests, rocky foothills, and rolling moors. After the cataclysm struck the Highland was separated from the rest of Varis by the Umber Sea.
The Highland is a wild and dangerous place and even the orcs must fight to control their land and keep it from being overcome by the savage wilderness.
Trolls, giants, and other horrible monsters lurk in the valleys, the bogs and moors, and the forests of the Highlands and travel is a luxury for only the best protected or desperate.
Nestled in the mountain called Earthclaw in the center of the Rockhome range is the great dwarven city Azduum.
