The sacred burial ground of Cimmerian chieftains for centuries, the Field of the Dead lies at the eastern end of Conall’s Valley in the northern part of Cimmeria

Situated at the very foot of Ben Morgh, the towering mountain where Crom himself is said to dwell, the Field of the Dead bears a close resemblance to Cimmerian descriptions of the afterlife. It is a rocky, windswept land, full of cold mists and pitiless rain. Dark heather grows on the stony hillsides and the burial mounds of old chieftains, and the howls of wolves echo plaintively from the depths of the twisting valleys. It is a bleak, haunting place, grim and cheerless as a Cimmerian’s soul.

Each clan lays claim to a specific part of the Field of the Dead, interring their leaders in mounds shaped of earth and stone. The chieftain’s final resting place is surrounded by armor and weapons, fine clothes, trophies and treasure, so that he will enter the realm of the dead with all the wealth that befits a great leader. Tales of such treasure sometimes lure raiders and treasure-seekers onto the burial fields, despite the terrible risks. Even if these would-be looters manage to avoid the watchful eye of Cimmerian patrols, they must still face the wrath of the spirits themselves. Many who venture into the depths of the burial mounds never see the light of day again.

This terrible drama is now being played out on a grand scale as a large force of Vanir warriors have invaded the sacred burial grounds. They are pillaging the grave mounds of ancient chieftains and plundering them of arcane relics, caring nothing for the warriors interred within. Bodies have been dumped onto the dank earth, or defiled by Vanir knives. Now the specters of angry chieftains haunt the Field of the Dead, seeking to avenge themselves against those who wronged them—or upon any living soul unfortunate enough to cross their path.

Worse still, Cimmerians struggling to turn back the Vanir raiders have heard terrible howls in the darkness, and some claim to have seen werewolves stalking the mist-shrouded valleys. It is feared that the Vanir have unleashed an ancient curse locked up in one of the older burial mounds, and for the moment the Cimmerians are powerless to stop it.
