The Valley of Dog-Men was nestled deep within the Kun-Yen Shan mountain range in the Hordelands.[1]


A large colony of gnolls claimed this valley. The gnolls were originally summoned to serve a powerful wizard, but stayed around and thrived after the wizard's death. As of 1359 DR their numbers hovered around 400.[1]

Their presence in the isolated valley gave rise to many legends about savage dog-faced men who abducted beautiful women.[1]

A group of the gnolls clashed with inhabitants of the Valley of Exiles while they were out exploring for new territory.[1]
