Forgotten Realms - The Northlands and Beyond
Berun’s Hill is a bare-topped, conical hill that commands a splendid view of the valley of the Dessarin River to the east. Is is used as a watchout for advancing barbarians and orc hordes from north and east. The hill got its name from the ranger Berun, who died here in doing this. He was slewn by an orc horde but managed to take 300 orcs with him, before they overhelmed him. Legends tell also that under the hill is a grave of an ancient dwarf with rich golden armor and treasures, but non have ever found it. Bandits often watch from the hilltop for the approach of victims, a much easier treasure to obtain than riches long since lost.
