The PCs do believe such tales knowing that there is always some truth to even the most unbelievable stories if one just knows what rumors to listen for.

Noron's Way | Zerhun Fortress by Columbia Games
  • SYSTEM: HarnWorld
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover supplements
  • RETAIL PRICE: $9.99/$14.99
  • DESCRIPTION: Noron's Way is named for an ancient road leading from Gardiren in Kaldor to Lorkin in Orbaal. Noron's Keep sits near the mid-point of the road. The trail ends at a ferry landing on the Anoth River. For most of its length, Noron's Way is little more than a rugged and often-muddy trail through mist-shrouded hills and brackish marshlands filled with disease, barbarians, and gargun. It is a lonely road with very little traffic because of the unpredictable and excessive tolls exacted by the enigmatic Noron. Special attention is given to Barsothe Falls, an impressive cataract with an evil reputation, and Gilfwydd's Landing, from which fishermen ferry travelers across the river. Zerhun is also the name of a stronghold of the Kingdom of Azadmere and the seat of Crown Prince Khazar Tarazakh. It is one of Hârn's most impressive engineering achievements and has long guarded the southern approaches to the kingdom. Covers the settlement's history, government, religion, economics, and military forces. It includes color GM and player maps of the settlement and color floor plans of the fortress barbican and main living areas, as well as the wharf and mercantylers' hall.
