Grey Company 2
Note This is an update of an older page.
The Grey Company is a mercenary band in Breland, absorbing the guild, Deathsgate. It is governed by a council of officers, the head of which is a Khoravar named Kenta Darkmoon.
The Company’s roots are in Karrnath, so half of the command line is made up of foreigners. Most soldiers, however, are Brelish.
The Company is still regarded well in Karrnath, and so does not take hostile actions that endanger the Old Country.
