The troglodyte realm of Kovhoshik is located in the Darklands region of Nar-Voth, beneath the Calphiak Mountains of western Varisia.[1] It is the north-westernmost section of Nar-Voth below the continent of Avistan.[2] Although troglodytes generally prefer to live in small family groups, the caves and tunnels of Kovhoshik provide the rare exception. Hundreds of tribes dwell here in close proximity to one another. They spend most of their time at each other's throats, conducting raids to capture slaves, eggs, or supplies. Only when threatened by an outside invasion, such as from ogres or goblins from the Caves of the Craven above, or from gugs or wormfolk from Denebrum below do they unite to defend their common interests.[3]
