Season of Storms

The Tukaj Hills (Polish: Pogórze Tukajskie), typically referred to by locals as simply "The Hills", is "a chain of upland covered in ancient woodland separating Temeria from Brugge [which stretches] in a wide belt about a hundred miles long and twenty to thirty miles wide". The western part is intensively worked by foresters and loggers. There are about four dozen settlements ranging from quite tiny to large in the area. According to some, the area was named after a legendary hero named Tukaj, others believe it was named after something else entirely.
