Neeshvale is a small village. Unlike most villages in Cimmeria it is not affiliated with a city-state. It serves as a supply post for trade between Bigby’s Forest and Sheerzen.
The village was recently conquered by an orc necromancer named Ratigon. He had been exiled from the Endless Autumn orc tribe in the Orc Lands. He made his way west until he found Neeshvale and conquered it with his undead minions. Ratigon lived off the villagers for a time until Gregor passed through. The necromancer bowed down to the orc king and vowed to serve him. Gregor demanded that Ratigon go back to the Orc Lands and spread news of his return. Ratigon did as commanded and left Neeshvale in peace.
