Sunwall

From PathfinderWiki

The Sunwall was a great line of uniform fortresses that stretched across the open plains of the land now known as the Hold of Belkzen. The fortresses were constructed after the defeat of Whispering Tyrant at the end of the Shining Crusade in 3828 AR to protect against any further threat that might emerge from the desolate northern lands. The Sunwall held back the rampaging hordes of orcs for four hundred years before it finally fell to them in 4237 AR.[1][2] Now it remains only as a series of abandoned fortifications some of which have been taken over by the very orcs they were meant to defend against.[3][4]

The series of fortresses were stretching from the Mindspin Mountains in the west to the Gap of Valballus in the east, where they joined with Ustalav's defensive line of Bleakwall. The fortresses were placed at intervals of 15 miles (the distance an armored soldier can travel on foot in a day).[5]
