The Uwaga Highlands


“Up the Pale River, past Bronze Hook and Kelmarane, you are deep into the Uwaga Highlands, and there even the so-called laws of the Pactmasters don’t hold any weight. They are a wild, savage place. Many eyes watch the mountain passes and canyons, all of them looking for new prey. I’m sure you’ve heard of the tribes of gnolls in the Brazen Peaks—slavers, the lot of them—but there are worse things in the highlands, things even the gnolls tread carefully around: haunted and howling old dwarf-holds, stones that speak and move, and chasms so deep even those down in the Darklands cannot see the bottom. They say the Pactmasters and their underlings leave the highlands be because the gnolls fatten their coffers with fresh slaves. That may be so, but if you ask me, it’s more because you could lose an army in the broken lands around Pale Mountain and never see a single one of them again.”

The Uwaga Highlands

The Uwaga Highlands are an area located in the north western Katapesh, wedged against the snow capped Brazen Peaks the highlands are a wild buffer between the more civilised reaches of Katapesh and their northern neighbour Osirion. Uwaga is a wild place, a frontier land in a rich nation, while the laws of Katapesh still apply here the reach of the enigmatic Pactmasters rarely extends this far. The people of the Uwaga highlands are therefore used to solving there own problems and are an independent bunch. Between the area’s few settlements the land is truly wild, roamed by feral wild life and savage humanoid tribes like gnolls and gargoyles.
