Snowy mountains separate the Howling Fjord from the coniferous forests to the north in Grizzly Hills. Many races call the area home -- the ice trolls live in isolated areas, the dark iron dwarves have their capital here in Thor Modan, the Scourge have a fortress in the northwest, The Venture Co. are deforesting away, a ressurected Arugal is raising an army of worgen...and the area is actually named for the overwhelming presence of Furbolgs.
Grizzly Hills are the ancestral home of the Furbolgs. Their capital city here marks their claim as perhaps being the first people in the region. However, the furbolg have an ancient history of fighting with the ice trolls of Zul'Drak. Apparently the furbolg have been moderately successful...the fortress in the northwest, Drak'tharon Keep, was weakened to the point it was captured by Scourge forces. However, the furbolg are also very distrustful of the Dark Irons in Thor Modan, and the two groups have gotten into clashes from time to time.
The Alliance work out of Amberpine Lodge, Granite Springs, Hollowstone Mine, and Westfall Brigade Encampment. The Horde are based in Conquest Hold and the Taunka settlement of Camp Oneqwah.
There are also a number of neutral bases.
Drak'tharon Keep is the only instance located in the northwest parts of the zone, connecting to Zul'drak.
There are several notable places to be found in this zone, all with their own story and lore.
