Shadowfell Keep

Realms, both wondrous and dire, border the world. One
such realm is the Shadowfell. Although not inherently
evil, the Shadowfell is fraught with dangers, and the barrier
between worlds can be thin. Sometimes the darkness
breaks into the light.
Nearly two hundred years ago, a cult of the demon
prince Orcus purposely created such a gap, connecting
one of Orcus’s unholy Shadowfell sites to the world. Skeletons,
zombies, and fouler creatures flooded through the
rift into the light of day. The empire of Nerath dispatched
legionnaires to eliminate the threat. The empire’s soldiers
destroyed the undead, sealed the opening, and built a keep
to watch over the location and contain the threat. This is
the site known as the Keep on the Shadowfell.
Decades of peace followed, and the village of Winterhaven
arose within sight of the keep. Eventually, the great
fort fell into ruins and its grand purpose forgotten. Today,
it is seen as a harmless tumble of stone and wood.
If only that were true.
