Chronicles of Khaldun: Bread and Circuses
Dead Man's Cross
A fixture of the Shadowfell, and often the first place new travelers encounter, Dead Man’s Cross is an ancient signpost standing at a five-way intersection. The signpost is worn away, but most are less likely to notice that than the ancient corpse, the titular Dead Man, whose body is strapped to the sign. According to legend, he was a cultist of Nerull punished by the Raven Queen for his devotion to his fell god. He ceaselessly carries out one task: if a traveler asks for the direction of anything in the Shadowfell, he will point the questioner to it.
Of course, there are many rumors regarding the Dead Man. Some of them might even be true.
The House of Black Lanterns usually appears at the crossroads here.
