(Village) Kel’s Rise is more an armed camp than a peaceful settlement. Most of the residents have retreated behind the walls of Castle Kel, fearful that gnolls from beyond the mountains might attack again. The inhabitants survived several month s under siege in the castle, and they still fed nervous when they step beyond the fortress’s walls.
A road heads through a pass over the mountains to the southeast, but no traveler s have used the road since the siege. No one in Kel’s Rise is sure whether the road is safe, because the gnolls retreated down it.
