Localized Phenomena

The harsh environment has led to an abundance of drowned and bloated corpses. Necromancers go through pilgrimages to this location in order to prove their mastery over death by reclaiming the bodies that the Death Marshes have previously claimed. Those who die here are often at unrest and rumor has it they walk once a month and their souls light up the grim area.


This swamp has always been hostile, though local myth has it that a ancient Shadowfell dragon made their lair in the region and died ages ago. Until recently no one has tried to settle in the region but there are some gnomes who have found ways to purify and swim through some of the thinner waters allowing them to live where no one else could. Often they would use the terrain to drive off or at least warn innocent travelers of the local terrors.
