"The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land..."

High Pass is the northernmost pass over the World's Edge Mountains and certainly the most treacherous. The High Pass winds it's way through jagged snow covered peaks, huge glaciers, jutting rock formations and sheer cliffs. High Pass has incredibly cold temperatures, and the snow rarely melts - even in the summer. The climate is dominated by howling winds and freezing blizzards which blanket everything in a white sheet of biting cold snow. Avalanches are common.
The ferocious climate of High Pass has bred equally ferocious creatures. The pass is inhabited by all manner of vicious predators, for nothing weak can survive here, powerful Sabertusks and mountain Wolves fight for dominance. Deadlier still are the towering Yeti-like Yhetees who make crude weapons out of shards of ice and rock, and hunt travellers and other creatures with their vicious rending claws several inches long.
The creatures are not the only inhabitants of the area though, as tribes of barbaric northmen who worship the foul Gods of Chaos also make their homes in the area. While many have marched south under Tchar'zanek's banner, many have also stayed to defend their tribal lands.
Tchar'zanek's Raven Host have also come to High Pass to claim the final artifact he requires to enact his master plan, opposing them are the courageous Order of the Griffon who find themselves taken to ever more hostile and far away locations in their effort to defeat the Raven Host and uncover the mystery of the Chaos plague.
A Luminous Vale, a colony of High Elves recently uncovered when it's magical concealment was lifted also resides in High Pass.
