The Stone from the Sky
The Red Hand
The Red Hand was a goblin army under the leadership of a hobgoblin warrior named Sinruth that gained control of a large portion of the Gray Vale for a brief period around 1430 DR. The Red Hand enslaved the people of the Gray Vale, using torture and execution to force local farmers to give all of their crops to the armies of Sinruth.
Fall of the Red Hand
In 1430 DR, Sinruth was killed by a group of adventurers in his private lair located underneath the Southwood. After his death, the goblins under his command began to quarrel and a small civil war broke out among them. With the help of the adventurers, the people of the Gray Vale drove most of the remaining goblins out and recaptured their lands.
