Path to The North
Southeast of Neverwinter lies an isolated monastery, dedicated to the worship of the god Helm. Founded someeight winters ago by a retired member of the famed Company of Crazed Venturers (of Waterdeep), the monastery was first a single farm known as Helms Stead. It has grown greatly, and been fortified (hence its name) against bandit and monster attacks, and now numbers some 700 devout worshippers of Helm. The founder, Dumal Erad, became the White Master of Dragons by defeating Iltmul at the Citadel of Mists.
