The Moon Scar
it is believed that in 978YK, a moon traveled to StoneWynd, embedding itself deep in the ground and carving a valley-sized furrow in its wake.
The Moon Scar is a long, wide valley carved long ago by the fall of a massive meteor. As the giant rock passed overhead, people saw strange lights, livestock fell over dead, and ill fortune befell all. The meteor crashed into the earth with deafening force, and red radiance lit the sky for a week. Then it vanished.
The meteor had carved its massive gash in a dark and wild place just beyond The Kings Wall. Where once had stood a wild forest and swamp between a line of small hills was this new valley—the Moon Scar.
Over a mile long and several hundred feet deep, the Chaos Scar is a testament to the vast power of the meteor’s impact. As it carved its path through the earth, shards and fragments of the meteor tore away until only its heart remained, embedded in an escarpment at the far end of its new home. There, it sent out its call.
Neland has tried to harness the threat of the Moon Scar, with little to no success. long ago King Jheric III erected a wall, the Kings Wall across the valley’s mouth long before the moon landed there not 20 years ago. It still stands, partly in ruins. Towers that once ringed the valley have fallen to ruin as well. Some are inhabited by monsters; others are simply empty.
Many adventurers or drunk tavern dwellers have entered the Moon Scar. Few have returned. Those that do weave dark stories of monsters working in concert as never before. Others tell of monstrous creatures working against one another.
