Deadwind Pass is a dark, mysterious land. The great tower of Karazhan, last home of the Guardian Medivh, stands higher than the tallest peak. Along the road that leads through it, there are crumbling guard towers that date back to before the First War.
There used to be a few hamlets in the area before the horde. Now, the mountain roads and valleys are full of pockets of orc clan remnants and roving bands of savage ogres. The road that passes onwards to the Black Morass is ‘safe’, or at least as safe as any road in the Pass can be. The others, leading to villages and the tower itself, are fraught with peril. Few humans live in this harsh, dangerous area as the settlements are all but abandoned.
