The mountain ranges of Lordaeron hold many unique and mysterious treasures, and the valley below Griffon's Roost is one of the more spectacular. Surrounded on all sides by extremely steep cliffs, the valley was accidentally discovered when a Dwarvish Flying Machine was blown off course during an unexpected storm. Expeditions have been sent overland to explore the valley, but the foreboding crags and horrific ice storms that sweep over the area have claimed the lives of many who would chart this remote place.[1]
