From the back of the book:
The dark lord Izrador has conquered the free lands of Eredane with merciless magic and savage steel. At the heart of his army is a dark forge where slaves and sorcerers labor night and day to equip the orcish hordes with weapons, armor, and equipment. It is called Steel Hill, and it is the FORGE OF SHADOW.
The armies of Shadow need Steel Hill to continue their onslaught, and that makes it one of Izrador's few weaknesses. Will the PCs be brave enough to sneak behind enemy lines and sabotage its precious products? Can they free the enslaved blacksmiths and kidnap or kill the dark enchanters that enhance their weapons? If they can take Steel Hill, will they destroy it from within, or will they try to capture it in a desperate attempt to gain an armory for the forces of good? In the battles ahead, many eyes will turn toward the FORGE OF SHADOW.
