The marsh that spreads out from both banks of the Nentir
River is territory coveted by few intelligent creatures, for
one principal reason: Shadowmire.
As elusive as he is deadly, this black dragon considers
the Witchlight Fens his realm, and most of those who
enter the swamp are not interested in contesting that
claim. (They rriight, however, be looking for the secret
location of his lair.)
The lizard folk of the fens manage to live in harmony
with the dragon, and some of the Witchlight lizard folk
tribes have come to worship him.
Near the eastern edge of the fens, where the wetland
merges with Harken Forest, the lizard folk of the Mistkiller
tribe frequently skirmish with bands ofDaggerburg goblins
that make forays out of the forest.
A number of ruins related to the ancient empire ofBael
Turath can be stumbled upon by those who explore the
depths of the swamp. Some of these have been occupied
by newer groups, including lizardfolk and goblin tribes,
but others are so mysterious and have such an air of malignance
as to drive all but the most desperate or depraved
from their presence.
