The clifftop citadel of Well Gurath fell to the hobgoblin hegemony a hundred and twenty years ago and was believed abandoned and ruined until Thren Silentflame, the Helltoothed Khan’s favoured sorcerer, established their command here. Now Well Gurath swarms with hobgoblins and their lesser kin – a dark blot on the edge of the wheatlands.
The fortress is a beacon to both the hobgoblins and those who would try to prevent the growth of the Khan’s hegemony. Thren has capped the steep roof of the bastion tower with perpetual magical flames visible from miles away to show off his sorcerous abilities, provide a rallying point for the goblins and hobgoblins of the local tribes, and really just to rub it in the faces of the nearby human settlers.
