Before the Gloomfall, the Shrikes were a network of smugglers who played both sides in the endless conflict between the Avar Imperium and the Maze.

But now, they are a menace, tossing aside their morals and fighting Skylight for vital resources instead of joining forces to fight back the Gloom. 
Reavers

Settled in the shrouded woods of Frostmarch, the Reavers are feral beings, more beast than human. Though, they used to be humans of the Woodwen tribe.

Westreach Tribes

Westreach Tribes[edit]

The Woodwen, a tribe of warriors and mystics, lived primarily in the Frostmarch and worshipped the natural powers in the forest there--the Heart of the Woods. They battled the Avar Imperium settlers to a standstill, remaining a free and proud people.

Westreach is a region that has been fought over for decades by the Avar Imperium and the Maze. 
Skylight

Named for the Great Beacon whose light shields us from the Gloom, Skylight itself acts as our last light in a world of encroaching dark. In the time before the Fall it was the greatest city in the Westreach.
Highlands

Highlands[edit]

The Kragan Highlands is a large mountainous region within Westreach. The Empire first fortified the region, the ruins of the Avar monastery, Aurelian, remain scattered throughout. The area was once renowned for its Trade Road—a gleaming promise of the prosperity to come. A promise broken by the Fall.
Aurelian
Aurelian[edit]
Equal parts library, temple, and arcane workshop, Aurelian was once a monastery for the Order of the Silver Codex. Originally founded as an Imperial outpost in a dangerous frontier, the ruins of Aurelian boast imposing fortifications which loom over the Highlands. Rumor tells that the monastery was abandoned during the height of the Mazewars.
The Codex Halls
The Codex Halls[edit]
Once home to monks dedicated to the Arcs, but now in ruin and home to the Broodmother, who is the cause of an infestation of shadow mutated spiders. It is here that monks would participate in a rite of passage, called the Trial of the Lingering Light, that would allow them passage to the inner sanctum of Aurelian.
Undercroft

The inner sanctum of Aurelian, were the Avar monks were committing heresy by researching ways to utilize the power of the Precursors. It is also home to The Argent Hand, the highest tenets of the Silver Codex.
