About a hundred miles north of Westruun, Jorenn Village is located on the southern edge of the cursed Umbra Hills. It is a rough-and-tumble frontier town, far removed from the halls of Emon and the Council of Tal’Dorei. Once a prosperous mining town, Jorenn Village has been slow to recover since the end of the Shattered War. The Battle of the Umbra Hills cursed the highlands causing many to flee south.
In recent years, things have started to turn around for the town. Rumors of new mineral deposits have flooded the town with prospectors looking to get rich. New businesses have sprung up to cater to their needs and farmers suddenly have more mouths to feed. Business is booming again and
Jorenn Village is very much a frontier town and frontier justice is the rule of law. The Shields of the Plains do not come this far north and there is no detachment like there is in Turst Fields. Instead, the town relies on the all-volunteer Shadewatch. A collection of mercenaries, vigilantes, and opportunistic bandits, the Shadewatch is equal parts militia and crime syndicate. They call it taxes, but the shop keepers call it extortion.
