Originally the Barren Caves were a breeding ground for demons in the Howling Mountains. After the demons' annihilation, the caves were abandoned and are considered to be cursed. Recently, it has become active again due to the demon Aeglin. Normal people avoid them at all costs. But lately a group of nearby Kobolds started to move and claimed ownership of this place.
Nobody knows why they began to act all of a sudden, but some suspect that they are looking for left-behind treasures and magical objects, which were hidden by the demons – a valid assumption considering their habits.
