The Scoured Legion (also known as the Scourged Legion[1]) of Hellgate Keep was a strong company of tanarukks.

LeadershipEdit

The Scoured Legion was led by Kaanyr Vhok, a cambion who proclaimed himself "the Sceptered One and Master of the Scoured Legions."[3]

MembersEdit

Vhok's Scoured Legion consisted of 2,000 tanarukk warriors with auxiliary troops: bugbears, ogres, giants, etc. They had their own forges and armories.[4]

Vhok lost 120 tanarukks in the Siege of Menzoberranzan.[5]

BaseEdit

The Scoured Legion was originally based in Hellgate Keep. After the fall of the keep, they settled in Ammarindar, where they remained until 1372 DR.[6] After the failed Siege of Menzoberranzan in 1373 DR, they returned to Hellgate Keep.[7]

HistoryEdit

The Scoured Legion invaded the Nameless Dungeon in Alturiak 1369 DR, opposed by a band of snakelike creatures.[8]

In 1372 DR to 1373 DR they participated in the Siege of Menzoberranzan alongside the duergar army of Gracklstugh with the support of the Jaezred Chaulssin, but withdrew just as the tide of battle turned against them, leaving their allies to be decimated.[9] Vhok subsequently removed his headquarters to Hellgate Keep.[7]

Later in the year they besieged Sundabar but were again repelled. Kaanyr Vhok and his consort Aliisza, fled for the Elemental Plane of Fire through a portal beneath the city, leaving the Legion fractured.[10]
