From the Maurenron Mountains to Sanreale Bay, the valley is thick with ancient forests, picturesque ruins, and somber tombs. It is alive with vibrant towns, memorable taverns and glittering palaces. It teems with eerie creatures, exhilarating predators, and cunning prey. Arch-wizards, grandees, artisans, and peasants make their homes in its wide, green lands.
Whatever your pleasure – travel, adventure, refuge – the Scaum Valley is the ideal destination. And this Gazetteer is the only guide you will need.
The Scaum Valley Gazetteer is comprehensive and beautifully illustrated, with clear, detailed maps throughout. The Gazetteer brings each community to life.
