Brook was a quiet farming community in the rolling lands of Gwyn Tirod. The settlement was peopled largely by hill dwarves and humans, though there were a few other races mixed into the town. Perhaps the greatest claim to fame Brook has is the Temple of Gefion. The refugees from Brook started the town of New Brook.
The town of Brook enjoyed a peaceful lifestyle for multiple decades. However, the Corrupter and his army of G'valt raiders sacked the town as their first target in War for the Western Southlands. The villagers that lived fled to the Wayward Wanderer where Turl, a Brook native, found the four adventurers later known as the Provokers and asked them to retrieve their relic from the Temple of Gefion. With the Provokers successful retrieval of the relic, a box of dirt, small houses began sprouting up around the Wayward Wanderer. With the blessing of their deity to cultivate new soil, the people of Brook began the town of New Brook. Many inhabitants pledged their allegiance to the Provokers and fought in the War for the Western Southlands at Falhast.
