The Barrow Downs
|Location:||The Spine of Ursum|
These natural hills have been here for a long, long time. Their tops are dotted with man made hummocks, believed to be the tombs of the Old Folk who inhabited these hills even before the Rainbow Empire rose to power. Legend tells that these people possessed ancient and powerful magic and that this magic protects their dead, even to this day. It is certainly the case that people who consider disturbing the barrows in search of ancient treasures are often never seen again. Sometimes the low moans of what sound like ethereal voices can be heard coming from the hill tops. Sensible people give the area a wide berth.
