The Valley of the Birthing Death is located in the foothills of the Stormspear Mountains in the far north-east of Icemark in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings. The valley looks as if it had been hewed clean out of the mountain and its narrow red walls create a realm of perpetual twilight. The Varki tribes avoid the valley due to the curse of Birthing Death: a curse manifesting as a rapid rejuvenation of the afflicted taking them back to childhood and then oblivion. This curse is not just physical but mental as well; stealing the memories and experience of the victim as they regress. Many have attempted to study or harness this strange effect but they have all succumbed to it, the knowledge required to understand the strange curse is inevitably one of the first things the curse claims.
