The Northern Plains are situated between the Cascadian Mountains to the south and the imposing ˈErdâr Balbîth mountain range to the north. The Duchy of Dwarrowdale, part of the Kingdom of Cascadia, takes up the northwestern part of the Plains. It's capital city, Surujabâzar, is situated in the center of the Plains, along the Kibil-nâla River ("Silverlode"). The Great Dwarf Road traverses large parts of the Northern Plains and is the main trading route in this area. Along the Cascadian Mountain front are two great forests inhabited mostly by woodelves, the Bluestone Woods and the Greenstone Woods.
