This large burial mound stands near the middle of
the Gray Downs, a desolate region. The old human
hill-clans who lived in the Vale raised the barrow
centuries before civilized folk settled in Fallcrest.
The hill-folk are long gone, but their grim barrows remain.
The Sword Barrow gained its name because scores of
rusted blades of ancient design are buried around its
edges, blades pointing inward; a visitor can turn up
several in a few minutes of looking around. The blades
seem completely ordinary, not hinting at the old warding
magic that surrounds the place.
