The oldest druid tradition in all of Khorvaire, the Gatekeepers hold true to their charge of vigilance against the horrors of the Dragon Below. The first of the Gatekeepers, Orcs, were taught their magic by the dragon Vvaraak. Today, less than a hundred Gatekeepers work within the Reaches. These druids maintain old wards scattered around the region, seals that hold the Daelkyr and other ancient powers in check. They also watch the skies for signs of deadly planar convergences. Their main task is to defend nature against aberrations, outsiders, undead and similarly unnatural beings. Most of the Gatekeepers in the Eldeen Reaches are Orcs, though a few Humans and Half-Orcs can be found within the sect.
