The Shroud of Silk
The County of Ashen Mountain
Location: In the Western Forest
Climate: Temperate Forest
Recruitment: 2,000 Amberite Men at Arms; 1,000 Arden Wardens
Chief Resource: Game Meat
Description: The Ashen Mountain only takes on its namesake color in winter, when the ash trees lose their leaves. The mountain makes up only a small part of the county, with rolling hills and forest all around. It’s a lighter forest than most of Arden, allowing for a bit of farming and a higher population than the rest of the forest. Most of the food still comes from hunting and fishing, but Ashen Mountain at least doesn’t have to import grain.
