12.16.2 the Dregs

Amidst the darkened crags of the Northeastern Gongen mountain range,     
exists the entrance to a foul series of ascending chambers below, known 
only as the Dregs. 

Discovered by liberated dwarves in the Second Age, the Dregs proved to be inhabited by creatures of the Horde that had developed a dark agriculture of enslaving and harvesting Gnomes as a food source. While that practice was thought to be ultimately destroyed, parts of the Horde remain in the Dregs scrounging together a meager sustenance from any hapless beings that stumble across their decrepit home. Unfortunately, a quiet war still rages within the crags, as a small group of ryadai, the last of their kind, fight to destroy those who choose to eat their people.

To this day, the darkest crannies within the Gongens hold denizens of the abominable Horde, just waiting to capture, enslave and devour anyone and anything that crosses their path.
