Borderholme is the small village, lying around Ironfeld Keep. The village has remained almost completly isolated for decades, and as such it is a simple place.
Most people in the village are simple farmers, with little practical skill aside from that. No one in the village is capable of reading, and mathematics is only used at the most basic level.
The village had been plagued by bandits for many years, until your arrival. Having handled that problem, the population of Borderholme hope to return to their peaceful existence.
