Winterbole Forest

This vast woodland defines the northern boundary of the
Nentir Vale_It is home to a multitude of monsters and
villains, among which a few stand out as the would-be
masters of their domain_
The white dragon Bitters trike holds sway over a large
part of the forest. Several of the Winterbole’s denizens,
most notably the Tigerclaw barbarians and the Frost
Witches, pay fealty to the dragon. They keep her pacified
and help her when she demands it, but none of them are
truly and honestly on her side.
Even a dragon with an army of vassals could not hope
to control the entire forest-and in fact the Tigerclaw
barbarians consider themselves the real power to be reckoned
with in the Winterbole. This wide-ranging band of
humans and shifters claims to be descended from a great
primal spirit, from which they draw their fighting skill
and their determination.
The Frost Witches are not nearly as numerous as the
Tigerclaws, but their desire for domination is no less
strong. Clenderi, the witches’ leader, would like nothing
better than to convince Bitterstrike to join their cause in
service to Cryonax.
The coniferous treants of the Winterbole Forest contribute
some of their ranks to the cadre ofBitterstrike’s
vassals, and they typically stand with the dragon when it
becomes necessary to put down an incursion into the
forest by humanoids. But their true enemies are the treants
of the Harken Forest. These two groups harbor an
enmity that dates back to the time when the two forests
were a single expanse of green that covered nearly the
entire vale.
