    Highpass Hold is an outdoor village of inhabitants at the peak of the mountains in the center of the continent. To the west lie the plains of Karana and to the east is the deadly Kithicor Forest. Anyone travelling between Qeynos and Freeport must pass through here if they wish to avoid the likes of trolls and ogres. McCabe's militia patrols the area in attempt to keep the growing threat of Deathfist orcs and invading gnolls at bay. Many merchants can be found amid the threat of orc ambushes. Also hidden in the pass is a society of smugglers known as the Circle of the Unseen Hand who are led by the legendary rogue, Stanos Herkanor. Many believe that McCabe not only knows about them, but is in league with them and the rogue guilds of both Qeynos and Freeport. It would certainly help explain the lavish nature of the Keep and the embattlements that protect the pass.
