In the Shadows of the Last War
The Dread Knights
From the Nightwood they ride
Unholy knights bent upon vengeance
The Last War’s hollow survivors
Harrowing conflicts have darkened their eyes
And Death is their dark master
Wherever their horses’ hooves pound
Only destruction and pestilence remain
For the past two years, the Dread Knights have been a tale to set children straight with. But attacks matching those in the tales have been rumored to have occurred in the Silver Wood area of Thrane.
Now, those rumors spread further south. The Dread Knights’ horses are said to have taken flight in order to spread their destruction and decay.
Just the other day, a farmer from the village of Pyram near Siyar said he saw nightmarish steeds stripped of their skin and drenched in blood carrying skeletal riders wearing chain mail across the Brey River and the borders of Breland.
The Dread Knights made their presence known in Woodhelm, and appeared to be led by Theoban ir’Eschus. With the death of the Karrnathi knight, they seemed to disperse. They have not been seen in Breland since.
