Shadow Dale is a town in The Dale Lands that seems to suffer from the forces of Shar. A small group of adventurers met one another here, and protected the village from a Shar Guardian, however the future of the town is still unknown, as such a defeat might bring vengeance down upon the small town.
Shadowdale is the most famous of the Dalelands, and is known as the home of the archmage Elminster and two of the Seven, Storm Silverhand and Syluné. Through its history, Shadowdale has battled both Zhentarim and drow invasions. What Shadowdale lacks in numbers, it makes up for by the strength of its inhabitants, including some retired adventurers.
