On a wooded hillside northeast of Thornkeep proper lies the encampment of the Wolfmane barbarians—a half-dozen hide tents with cookfires, skinning racks, smokehouses, and working areas.
But at any given time, a dozen or so Wolfmanes are here, trading meat, pelts, and carvings for iron tools, blankets, glass, and other things that are hard to find in Kellid camps. In addition, young tribespeople come to Thornkeep to sample civilized life for a time, often hiring themselves out as mercenaries or guards. Many of these youths travel widely for years before returning to their tribes.
Chief Darioth Wolfmane leads the local band, and she can often be found here, trading news with barbarians from distant corners of the Echo Wood. She decides which merchants the tribe deals with, and which parties of adventurers or explorers may enter Wolfmane hunting grounds.
