The fields north of the Fertile Plains are known as the Upper Plains. The land is here has more moisture that the Lower Plains. This impacts the farmers who work this land to provide food to the all the King’s people by allowing them to grow a wider variety than the southern fields. People here live a simple life of hard work with the land and prosperity with their King. The Barbarian tribes will winter in the Upper Plains if it is a year during which they harvest their herd’s coat. They also visit once a year in the spring to exchange goods with the King’s men as part of their peace agreement.
