The Ebon Cabal
A woodland expanse stretching from the northern slopes of the Star Mounts to the southern edge of the Nether Mountains. This ancient wood is notoriously haunted by fey creatures, gnolls, and drow. Occasionally, wood elves of the forest trade with the people of Loudwater.
A perilous swampland to the south of Loudwater where few townspeople dare go. It is notorious for cold, choking mists that conceal a rocky wilderness rife with trolls, goblins, and even more terrible creatures.
The largest settlement in Gray Vale, Loudwater is encircled by a wall of timber and stone more than 20 feet high. The fortifications and the determined but personable people living here make Loudwater an attractive stop for travelers of all kinds.
