Located south of the Old Water, a few miles north of New Sarshel, the Barrowlands was a barren landscape of earthen mounds that were nearly completely devoid of life. The only known flora was a small, black-leafed shrub that was referred to as widow's tears by the local populace.
Beneath the mounds was a series of interconnected chambers. These were affected by magic that rendered them completely full of darkness, which could not be abated by nearly any natural source of light.
The Barrowlands were shunned by the local Impilturans and they avoided passing through unless absolutely necessary. As of the Year of Lightning Storms, 1374 DR, there were rumors about a hidden, subterranean cabal of Nar demonbinders that escaped from the Great Conflagration and embraced undeath as liches.
