A herd of wild horses graze these plains.
Their leader, a powerful stallion named Windchaser,
once served an elderly druid of the River Kingdoms as
an animal companion. Just prior to the druid’s death,
he dismissed the stallion and cast awaken on him before
releasing him back into the wild. Now, the intelligent
horse defends his herd against predators and anyone who
ventures too close, using his knowledge of the local area
to keep them safe.
Windchaser can speak, but he generally prefers not to
unless he trusts someone—his initial attitude is unfriendly.
If the PCs can make him friendly, the awakened horse can
tell the PCs about all of the non-hidden encounter areas in
the hills or plains of the Slough, including the location of
Armag’s Tomb and the fact that the Tiger Lord barbarians
are hiding out in a hidden valley there. If made helpful, he
may even deign to become a player’s mount.
