Tales from Elrond
Small Town * Population 1,673 (86% Human, 4% Gnome, 3% Halfling, 7% Other)
A small walled-town located near Thunderspire Mountain and on the road to Mirabar, Winterhaven is remote enough that it is subject to frequent attacks by kobolds and goblins from the neighboring mountains. To the southwest of the town is an ancient dragon burial site and to the northeast is the ruins of Shadowfell Keep (in which a cleric of the Demon Lord Orcus attempted to open a portal to the Plane of Shadow but was stopped by a dragonborn paladin named Magnara and his group of adventurers, only Magnara survived the ordeal).
The ruler of Winterhaven is Lord Padraig. Other notable citizens are the town’s priestess Linora (a cleric of the agricultural goddess Chauntea), Gevarn (an acolyte of Chauntea), and Valthrun (a scholar and wizard who lives in a five-storied tower that is said to be over a thousand years old).
