The Unquiet Earth
A trio of rivers come down from the highest peak of the Verdant Mountains, pouring out of a great cleft in the rock. Two of the rivers run down into the Tamed Lands, and one runs into the Beyond. The halflings of Breackbrook guard the pass that the water has cut between the Tamed Lands and the Beyond, ensuring that no creatures from the Beyond ever enter the Tamed Lands.
According to legend, thess small but fierce warriors were created by Sheilir and given the rocky ledge of Breachbrook as their home. They are tasked with the safety of all of the Tamed Lands.
Breachbrook is a strange mixture of dwarf-inspired fortified cave dwellings and simple reed huts build right into the two rivers. Every Breachbrooker, from age seven to one hundred and seven, does their part defend agaist the constant raids of orcs that pour into the narrow pass from the Beyond.
