Brotherhood of the Griffon
Backdrop Chessenta Lore
These low but rugged hills have long been mined by Chessentans for their abundant mineral wealth, primarily in copper and silver deposits. Unfortunately for miners (and adventurers!), a colony of rust monsters also inhabits these hills. Every decade or so, the King of Tulach (population 1,100) sends mercenaries into the Maerwatch to exterminate the ravenous vermin, but inevitably the rust monsters always return.
