Dungeons & Dragons of the Nentir Vale
This area of fog-shrouded low hills serves as the principal headquarters of the Gray Company, loyalists of old Nerath that dedicate themselves to finding magic items and other treasures lost when the empire fell. The leaders of the Gray Company, including at least one self-proclaimed heir to Nerath’s fallen throne, seek the most-powerful relics of the lost empire – the enchanted Sword of Nerath and the fabled Threefold Crown that signifies the pact that the ancient emperors made with the Feywild, the Shadowfell, and the natural world.
Treasure hunters and explorers find the Gray Downs covered with burial mounds dating back to the ancient times when primitive humans lived and hunted here. The hill clans are gone, but their spirits live on, guarded and shepherded by the undead creatures known – for good reason – as hounds of ill omen.
