The Crossroads, The Barrens

The town is named The Crossroads because it is where four roads meet. One goes north to Ashenvale and Razor Hill in Durotar, one goes east to the Goblin port town Rachet, another goes west to Sun Rock Retreat in Stonetalon Mountains and the last used to go south towards Mulgore but the way was cut off when Deathwing created a a massive canyon cutting the Barrens in two.
