Jacob's Ladder Region
The Jaboc’s Ladder region is a small region north of the countries of Khe’et and Vedric. For the past twenty years it has been it’s own sovereign region after the small war known as the Goblin Blitz. Before the Blitz both Khe’et and Vedric considered both the region and town of Jacob’s Ladder their property, and fought over it often. Because neither country came to the aid of the Jacob’s Ladder when the goblinoid army attacked, the mayor took the opportunity and declared the town free of the countries that would not help them. In the valley that forms the majority of the region there are few notable areas. To the southwest is the Goblin Marshes, to the northwest is the Iron King Fortress and to west is the Monestary of Old Knowledge. In the center of the valley is the town of Jacob’s Ladder, which takes it’s name form the region. The town is a fairly large village with a population of roughly 5000 including farmers from outlying farms. The river, the Cleave, that bisects the valley is known as the Dispute to those from the more southern part of the area and into the two southern nations.
