Trostad was formerly a village of trappers on the border with Kessig, which has been entirely overrun by Geralf the necromancer and his undead creations. His sister Gisa constantly lays siege to the village, seemingly for no purpose other than to best her brother. Geralf has grander ambitions and has been sending armies of undead into the Nearheath and raiding villages there.

Trostad lies along the Kirch River.
