The Dale Wardens are the rangers and scouts who protect the Dale Lands and enforce it’s laws. They patrol the boarders and travel from town to town, keeping a watchful eye out for disturbances, aggressors, and those who would threaten their fellow Dalelanders.
The Dale Wardens are divided into different groups, each tasked with watching over a region of the Dale Lands. Based out of Colm are the River Wardens, who patrol the central river valley of the Dales. The Deepwood Wardens, based out of Harper’s Ford, patrol the southwest, including the Deepwood, the West Road and along the southern escarpment. The North Wardens watch over the barrowlands and the North Road, from the Shield Mountains to the Frost Peaks. They call Highgate home. The Dale Wardens of Bloodsworn Vale are members of the North Wardens. Protecting the the region around the Lothian Forest are the Eastwood Wardens. They are technically based out of Colm, like the River Wardens, but the Eastwood Wardens tend to stay afield most of the time. They camp in the forests and hills of the eastern Dale Lands, living off the land, and in turn, protecting it. They have close ties with the Elves of Avalyr and with the benevolent fey of Lothian Forest.
