A small dwarven watch in the Barrow Mountains, Unrol Kaz’ad used to house a small team of dwarven rangers who would patrol the traditional thirteen-and-a-half mile radius around the watch looking for signs of goblins, giants, and trolls in the region. With the encroachment of human pioneers into the region and the slow decline of the great dwarven kingdoms, Unrol Kaz’ad was sealed up and abandoned like many similar watches.
But all it takes is one nosey wizard with a knock spell to unseal a watch. Which is what happened to Unrol Kaz’ad about 80 years ago. Originally this was to provide the local fiefdom’s rangers a place to resupply and rest while out in the field. When the fiefdom became the Principality of Nerron, they locked the doors again and pulled back its patrols to protect the city of Nerron and the immediate farmlands around the city and towns.
But the watch is just too inviting to leave empty like that. Today the old watch is home to a small group of dissidents from Nerron – the retinue of Princess Eslene who was denied the crown when it was passed on to her much younger brother. While Princess Eslene remains active in Nerron, her retinue operates in exile coordinating operations with her to destabilize the principality and set it up for her to reclaim the crown.
The 1200 dpi versions of the map were drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and are 9,000 pixels (30 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5′ squares) or 140 pixels (for 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 2,100 pixels wide or 4,200 pixels wide, respectively.

Is that a pit in the middle?

Some sort of trench… might be used as a sump in the spring when the waters flow down the mountain… might be a place to stack bodies of invaders… or just a place to host goblin fights.
