Thornkeep (Druid's Head)
The Murdoons are a stubborn, pugnacious clan of freeholders who live in a fort-like palisade several miles north of Thornkeep. They get by with trapping, hunting, gathering nuts and mushrooms , raising pigs, and tending a small garden plot within their crude fortifications. The leader of the clan is Tunk Murdoon, a thick-waisted, broad-shouldered bulldog of a man who spits in the eye on anyone who tries to tell him what to do or how to live. Four of Tunk’s grown children and their families live here, along with a couple of stray cousins and in-laws who all share the Murdoon determination to make a go of it with no help from anyone else.
