Village Backdrop: Shroudhaven

Nestled in a deep valley, Shroudhaven has never seen sunlight in the centuries since its founding. A long-forgotten war drove refugees to the valley where a persistent thick fog had permanently settled, a side-effect of magical might employed during the war. The fog shields its residents both from the elements and from those who might seek to destroy them merely for who they are. For most of those dwelling in Shroudhaven are undead. A dark reputation—like the pervasive fog—hangs over the village, but those spending time with the villagers tell a different story, one in which the battle against the base urges.

Places of Power: Godswatch

On the bank raging river Kyrne, where it narrows, priests keep a holy vigil in a storied spire, the Godswatch. Consecrated in the name of countless gods, the site of a great triumph for the god of the local river, the tower is sought out by pious pilgrims and frequented by inquisitive priests, for few have as much knowledge of distant or esoteric religions as its caretakers. Faith, the tower’s priestess, welcomes every traveller regardless of his or her purpose.

20 Things to Find in a Smuggler’s Lair

Smugglers often lurk in hidden, isolated caves. Such locales provide the perfect base from which to pursue their nefarious profession. However, such places are rare pristinely tidy and without points of minor interest to exploring adventurers.
