East of Winter
Reach is the name given to Remidon's most formidable eastern stronghold. It was not one but three castles all within a day's march of one another. Each fortress lay atop a hill adjacent to open ground; giving them a marked strategic advantage. When all three fortresses are held they control a large swatch of territory from the Eastern Strait in the south to the Baraduin desert in the north and the Thundercrags and the Trollwod to the west.
The siege of Reach spanned decades until finally the western most castle fell. With their defenses compromised, the citizens of the Reach began to retreat while thousands of brave souls stayed in their castles buying time. Once they had withdrawn, the bridge and gatehouse at The Span were destroyed, cutting off not only the forces of the monstrous races but the remaining fighters still inside the Reach. Their sacrifice bought Remidon an invaluable amount of time though it may have ultimately been in vain.
