Maelstraen is a small village north of the Cairngorm mountain range. It is a small farming village, known in the area for it’s exports of fruits and fabrics. Maelstraen is too small to have any notable army, although a man by the name of Master Brael often trains the townspeople in Militia tactics, in the event of any attack. Most of those who live in Maelstraen have not left the village, with the exception of the occasional travel to the nearby town of Winterhaven, where they can trade their goods.
Maelstraen was recently attacked by a group of unkown raiders. Little is known about the attack, but Bamelias, a survivor of the attack, says that the village has been burned to the ground.
