Dragon Age - The Wandering Blades
A typical Avvarian settlement of the Frostbacks, Redhold is effectively a stone fortress sitting with its back to the sheer granite sides of a mountain. Most of the buildings visible from outside the walls are made of stone, with wood only an afterthought as a construction material. The forest has been cut back a hundred yards from the high rock walls that surround the village, leaving a hillside covered with moss and the first hints of spring flowers.
Redhold was besieged by an army of darkspawn months ago, but the horde was turned back when a group of adventurers allied with the Avvar to defend the settlement.
