Helspire is a haunted fortress carved out of the rock of the the Grey Mountains near Axe Bite Pass.[1a][2a]

Typically, Helspire appears to be long abandoned. However, on some nights, eerie lights shine from the castle. On these nights, the undead ride from the castle, terrorizing Reikland to the east and Bretonnia to the west. Theories abound as to who commands these undying legions. Some say it is a coven of Necromancers, others a vampire, and still others a liche. Whatever the truth, they are certainly powerful, for no man has entered Helspire and lived to tell the tale. However, as is often the case with such locations, rumours speak of great treasure and loot within the halls of Helspire.[2a]
