3rd Nerathi Legion
The site of Fallcrest’s failed attempt to hold back the Bloodspear orcs several decades ago, Gardbury Downs is said to be haunted by the spirits of the fallen defenders of the Nentir Vale. Remains of that old battle litter the Downs still – broken swords, shattered armor, and old bones. Travelers on the King’s Road rarely see any signs of ghosts, but the folk of Winterhaven know better than to wander the Downs at night.
Orcs from the Stonemarch also appear in the Gardbury Downs from time to time, circling the Cairngorm Peaks to raid into the Nentir Vale. It is here that one may also find the old Gardmore Abbey.
