North

The North is the name given to the Northwest corner of Faerun. The region is bordered by the Spine of the World, the Sword Coast, the nation of Amn, and the Anauroch Desert

The North has often been referred to by other peoples as the Savage Frontier due to its rough-and-tumble inhabitants. In reality, the communities ranging through this area run the gamut, from Uthgardt tribes to the far north of the region, to the cosmopolitan urban populations of cities such as Waterdeep or Silverymoon, to the dwarf holds near the Spine of the World, to the elven communities in the High Forest, to the maritime kingdoms in the Trackless Sea. These centers of civilization are divided by vast expanses of wilderness, some of which are also home to aggressive orc tribes bent on conquest of the region.
