Griffon's Nest is a village in an area of grass-cloaked hills west of the Shining Creek. The village is one of the few permanent Uthgardt settlements. The village itself is made up of about 20 thatched log huts that are sealed with baked earth. These huts are arranged around a couple warehouses and a longhall. The entire village is encircled by a stout log palisade. There are also about a dozen small farms on the outskirts of this palisade. Outsiders are watched closely by the Uthgardt who live around here, and lookouts can call upon groups of javelin-throwing pony-riders swiftly if trouble makes itself clear.
Griffon's Nest was once a bandit hold that was controlled by a man named Azglyn and his band of half-orcs. The Uthgardt barbarians moved in and slaughtered them all, claiming the area as their own.
