Ghost Knight of Galardoun
Throughout the Heartlands of Faerûn, word has spread of an eerie apparition that many folk have encountered in dark and lonely places. For about the first twenty years in which this strange haunt was seen, it appeared only in the vicinity of Galardoun, a ruined village along the Trade Way between Triel and Scornubel. On occasion, beginning about four decades ago, the apparition followed travelers who passed through Galardoun on long journeys. It tarried for a time at various destinations, including Waterdeep, Suzail, Marsember, the cities of Sembia, settlements large and small in the Dales and around the Moonsea, and—less often—in Amn, Tethyr, and Turmish. No two tales agree on what this phenomenon is or where it came from, but all maintain that it takes the form of a silent, flying warrior’s helm.
