Warhammer Great Northern Road

The Great Northern Road

"Go by the North Road."
Middenland saying, meaning 'to take the hard or dangerous route'[1b]

The Great Northern Road is the name given to the main road between the city-state of Middenheim and the Westerland capital Marienburg.[1a]

The road goes straight through the Drakwald Forest. Deep under the forest eaves also lurk Beastmen, descendants of raiders from long ago, who breed and wait, occasionally attacking the lone farm or small group of travellers, until the time comes for Chaos to claim the north. The nobles and burghers of the province occasionally mount expeditions to root them out, but survivors always flee deeper into the forests, to wait again and regrow their numbers.[1a]
