Scales of War
Located to the south of Brindol, Rivernroar castle was originally home to the wealthy Rivenroar family, as a focal point to their surrounding estates. Time and war took its toll however, and over the years the influence from the castle lessened, and the farmland returned to nature. The keep fell into disrepair, and was eventually abandoned and left to the savage wilds.
One section that remained relatively untouched was the crypt, where the spirits of those interred there kept nature at bay. It wasn’t until the Red Hand began to rise that the crypts gained new tenants. The savage hobgoblin Sinruth united local tribes to resurrect the Red Hand, and set up his base of operations in the crypts. To placate the undead lords, Sinruth bargained to provide them with prisoners to feed on. This led to the raid on Brindol and the capture of several of its citizens.
Within days the Defenders had tracked down the entrance to the ruins, and began the rescue the townsfolk. Delving deeper they uncovered Sinruth’s abode, and slew the would be lord of Rivenroar, and his undead allies.
