Excerpts: The Great Dale
Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide
In today’s Forgotten Realms preview, we take you to the region of the Great Dale, from chapter 6 (Faerun and Beyond) of the forthcoming Campaign Guide.
The Great Dale is the long, windswept gap between the Forest of Lethyr and the northern Dunwood (formerly called Rawlinswood). Rumpled ridges of bare rock rise from the thin soil, growing steeper and more rugged to the north and south as one climbs toward the forests that flank the vale.
Fierce winter winds scour the land during the cold months, and all year long the Great Dale is a desolate land. Leaving aside trade towns, the only major settlement is Yeshelmaar.
