Plain of Fear

Were, although not indicated here, is presumably near the Plain of Fear and Rust.

Were is the name of a city or town mentioned only once in the Annals, by Soulcatcher in The Black Company.

The Black Company[]

Were was the site of a noteworthy battle between Soulcatcher, the most powerful of the Ten Who Were Taken, and Whisper, the most dangerous Rebel leader among the Circle of Eighteen. This occurred not long before Soulcatcher was sent to Beryl to conscript the Black Company and annex that city for the Lady's Empire.

Soulcatcher mentioned the battle at Were – along with two other major clashes with Whisper: Rust and the Plain of Fear – to Croaker in a moment of genuine admiration of her nemesis.
