Echoes of Glory
Only dark followers of Scaetha and undead dwell in the Withered Lands. Just after the Blizzard War, the region was conqured by three of the Liche-Priest’s dark lieutenants. Thousands of undead flocked to their sides, creating the Black Heath. Paladins kept the undead at bay, but during the Golem Uprising, the undead spread into Darkwood Forest.
Nowadays, the Paladins work on containment rather than erradication and have encircled the region with forts and temples, as well as the castle at Deathwatch.
