Vale of Shadows
The Vale of Shadows is a river valley in the Shadow Lands northeast of Asshai. The valley is a narrow cleft in the mountains through which the river Ash passes on its way from the Mountains of the Morn to the Jade Sea. The mountain cliffs are so high and steep that it is said no light falls within the valley except at noon. Demons and dragons and worse things are said to live in caves in the cliffs. At the heart of the valley is the ruined city of Stygai.
