Winterhaven was a very ancient settlement of men, long established by the present age of Faerun. After the collapse of the Keep at Shadowfell, Winterhaven continued to thrive governed ably by Lord Padraig
The town of Winterhaven stands watch over a ruined keep that was once a bastion of good in the realm. This keep overlooks the Shadow Rift, a dark scar in the world that was once a gateway to the Shadowfell but has been dormant for many years. Now, an evil cleric of Orcus, Demon Lord of the Undead, seeks to re-open the gate, and the only thing standing in his way is a small yet determined band of heroes.
