Dorastor is a mountain area in the south west of the Empire. Oxhead is always under attack from the Shadowfall Mountains. The Hold has been rebuilt four times in the last three years.
Castle Kartdin holds the main pass in the Western Rockwood Mountains and is able to supply the inland area with arms from Tycho City and the south.
It has forever been a problem, with large clans of Cultests and Ogre mages who lead the Orcs, Dark Spawn and Goblins into the low land as raiding groups often many hundreds in size for many months of the year.
