Gareth’s Hollow is a small community in the Underdark region that is comprised of the former city of Dorsten. The Hollow, as its often referred to, was founded by Gareth Ham Hands after leading the relatively rag-tag band of refugees in a rebellion to break free of their illithid masters. The Hollow is open to nearly all races provided that they agree to work together with the other residents of the community. As such, the residents of the Hollow range everywhere from Elves and Eladrin to orcs, goblins and kobolds.
In the years since it was founded, Gareth’s Hollow has managed to secure its borders and even begin a small trading enterprise with other communities in the Underdark. Gareth Ham Hands makes sure that every citizen in the Hollow is prepared to go to war should the community be attacked. Visitors to the community will notice this immediately as every citizen capable of wielding a weapon is in fact armed, even the bar maids at the town’s only inn, the Laughing Dragon, are armed with vicious looking daggers. Although the town has developed a fairly strong military force, Gareth does not currently seek to expand the borders of the Hollow, rather preferring to secure that which he already holds. He does; however, hope to be able to expand the commercial might of the Hollow. With that in mind, he is always seeking skilled artisans or enchanters who might be able to create goods that would be valued by other communities.
