The Ruins of Karnholdt
Little is known to the adventurers of the “real” Karnholdt since they only encountered its echo in the Shadowfell.
During a previous excursion through Thunderspire Labyrinth the adventurers hit a “soft” area between the world and the Shadowfell and slipped through. There they were charged by an aspect of the Raven Queen herself to aid the lost souls of Karnholdt in passing on. Only the will of the mysterious Lord of Karnholdt kept these souls, his former vassals, bound to the Shadowfell. The adventurers first traveled from the village and were then tested by the Lord’s captain of the guard, a headless horseman. They defeated the horseman and eventually defeated the Lord, a skullord to be precise, and freed the souls from their bondage. They located a great chamber beneath the keep housing a mysterious chain which transported them back to the living world.
More recently The adventurers were tasked by The Black Cloaks with the defense of the Karnholdt ruins. In the natural world, the former keep served as a strong point in the the northern mountain pass. Orcs rallied to war by Solomon the Traitor want to take this keep for an unknown purpose.
