Across the Midnight Sea from Gloomwrouht sits Shadowgate. The city was founded by Shades who found life among other races intolerable. Over time it has drawn other shadow creatures to it. While not coterminus with the Shadowfell as Gloomwrought is, Shadowgate is definitely infused with dark energy, either from its inhabitants or the strange dark waters over which it sits, or perhaps both.
The Arkhosians had avoided Shadowgate previously, but when Rhogar led them into the war, it was among the first cities taken. The Shades were firmly in the Arcanist camp, and Rhogar was unwilling to leave a belligerent city behind his flank as he marched south. Unlike most cities, however, Shadowgate resisted. It was two years before the Arkhosians overcame the defenses. An elite unit of dragonborn, the Shadowguard, was left as a garrison, and it remains there to this day, guarding a resentful population.
