Greyfell in SpellForce
Greyfell is the seat of House of Wulfgar. It lies in the southern part of Northander, bordering to Windwall mountains and the Highmark. It is a prosperous and safe country and one of the main bastions of the Order of Dawn.
Getting to Greyfell
After her revival by the circle mage Rohen the rune warrior that later on was known by the name Phoenix Bearer, found herself to the east of the island close-by to a hero monument. She was greeted by Rohen but their conversation was interrupted by a messenger. He told Rohen, that strange beings invaded the borders of Nortander at the Wildland Pass. Rohen urged the rune warrior to head to the city to talk to Sartarius. The rune warrior and the messenger headed there but on their way, they were ambushed by a mage, the Dark One. The messenger turned out to be a traitor. He was given a strange casket by the Dark One that should be delived to the leader of the Black Fist, Brannigan. The rune warrior then should be killed but was able to defend herself and to kill the messenger.
The rune warrior then activated the human monument close-by and summoned a rune army in order to fight the local cave orcs and goblins. She broke through the creatures' lines and was able to get to Greyfell and to talk to Sartarius. When she warned him of the Dark One, he sent the rune warrior to Liannon to warn Rohen.
Searching for Hokan's legacy
After the rune warrior had witnessed Rohen's death at the Frost Marshes, she returned to Sartarius to inform him about the death of the circle mage. When the rune warrior told him about Rohen's last words to find Hokan's legacy, he opened the southern gate to the Northern Windwalls. Sartarius sent the rune warrior off to the lands of the house of Hallit. From there on the journey continued through the Greydusk Vale until the rune warrior had reached Whisper and Mulandir.
Returning as the Phoenix Bearer
Greyfell itself is a city located on the top of a plateau above the Shadow pass. On the foot of the plateau lies a small village of Wulfgar fishers. Far in the west is an ancient hero monument, that used to be the place of summoning of Rune warriors. A bridge, joining the western edge of Shadow pass to the rest of the country, is guarded by a Wulfgar patrol. The reason for it are the rampaging goblins and cave Orcs, that occasionaly attack the travellers. It is also said, that a dangerous bandit hid somewhere in the forests. However, the most creepy are three murmuring graves, that can be found near the road.

The Shadowpass does not have fertile soil, but it's rich in iron, stone and relative enough wood. The wildlife and the lakes provide enough meat and fish. Inside Greyfell are small plantages of different kinds of berries, but as there is no Elven Monument on the island, so berries cannot be gathered.
Greyfell in SpellForce 3
In SpellForce 3 Greyfell is the capitol of the Nortander realm and home to the Wolf Guard order and the Purity. During the absence of its rightful leader the king-regent Angar Arandir rules Nortander together with the royal army and the wolf guard.
