This area offog-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 ofNerath 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 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.
