A location in Krevborna
The sparsely populated hills and plains west of Krevborna’s nominal bastions of civilization are collectively known as the West Marches. Small towns, villages, and farmsteads dot the borderlands between Krevborna and Vezda. These communities are connected by dusty trade roads that lead beyond Krevborna’s borders. In between these outposts are swaths of badlands littered with supposedly abandoned keeps, castles, and monasteries.
An atmosphere of vigilante justice prevails in the often lawless West Marches; its settlements are imperiled by unholy beasts and predatory outlaws, and it lies beyond the protective reach of the Church of Sacred Blood. The lonely farmsteads and villages of the West Marches are encircled by perimeter walls meant to keep out monsters and bandits. Most settlements in the West Marches practice their own forms of self-governance, but some are oppressed by local tyrants, mercenary bands, or cult leaders.
