Valindra Shadowmantle’s influence and corruption is omnipresent across the Forgotten Realms in Neverwinter. By leading an army to besiege Neverwinter, her ultimate goals are the destruction of the living world and to rule the Sword Coast at any cost.

Furthermore, historical events like the eruption of Mount Hotenow, and the resulting tragic life loss, as well as the Spellplague caused a significant rise in undead.
During your quests in Neverwinter, you will encounter numerous undead creatures. They are normally found in areas of great death, sorrow, or tragedy like ancient graveyards.
