Flora and Fauna: The Barony of the Two Lakes Vale encompasses a small valley nestled between the Icereach and the Mengul Mountains, in the southern part of Norwold, near the Denagothian and Heldannic borders. Two lakes stand in the middle of the dominion, providing its inhabitants with plenty of fish. Monstrous wildlife comes from gigantic fish as well as from hippogriffs, rocs and manticores that live in the mountains surrounding the valley. Mountain lions, panthers and wildcats are also frequent encounters. A group of hydras is said to live in the little swamp near the western lake.

Last Year's Events: The Shadow Lord, Ulslime, the elf vampire Sylarion, and Prince Morphail Gorevitch-Woszlany all conspired to extend the reach of the Death Stone, a powerful artifact of Entropy, and bring about Nyx's dominion over Norwold (for a start). The barony was under the overpowering influence of the artifact and its undead servants, its terrified inhabitants cowering under the dark cloud and increasingly foul weather it generated.
