Assembled by the Red Dragon, the Dragon Army terrorized the Black Peaks for one hundred years. When Lord Stefan defeated the Red Dragon, the Dragon Army mostly scattered to the four corners of the earth—but many monsters continue to lair in the Black Peaks; it remains a dangerous place.
In large part the Dragon Army consisted of Goblins, Hobgoblins, and Bugbears, but also included eccentric creations of Rary the Traitor, certain Undead creatures, Berserker hillmen, and Giants. How many of these creatures still lair in the Black Peaks after the defeat of the Army near Threshold is unknown, but the remnants of the Army remain a matter of concern to the local villagers.
