The Savage Frontier is a 1st-edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons accessory for the Forgotten Realms. It provides information on major settlements, strongholds and ruins of the lands to the north of the city of Waterdeep; and includes adventure ideas.

North of Waterdeep, the land is cold, vast, and forbidding. The Trackless Sea stretches northward for what seems like forever, interrupted only by the occasional island and, eventually, the ice. On land, towns and villages flourish right up to the Spine of the World Mountains. It takes a special kind of person to live up here; a determined person used to hardship, a survivor. A person with a great love for life and a great respect for the forces—both natural and unnatural—that can end it. The Savage Frontier is now fully detailed for your roleplaying campaign. The cultures, personalities, economies, cities, towns, and wilderness are described for an AD&D® campaign of any size or level. From the barbarian tribes of the far north to the Luskan pirates of the Trackless Sea, The Savage Frontier is an exciting land where adventures can be found anywhere. And, of course, it's all part of the best-selling FORGOTTEN REALMS™ Campaign Set, home to many other AD&D® modules, sourcebooks, and even novels![2]
