The settlement of Irongard, snug on the rugged terrain that hugs the northwest shoulder of Lake Ironrain, was built over the ruins of the town of Wardhollow, which was destroyed in a goblin raid nearly four hundred years ago.
Rising out of the depths of the lake, a mile out from the cove around the edge of which Irongard stands, is the grim spectre of Thorn Isle.
This area was introduced for the Halloween 2011 event.
A thin veil of mist covers the tangled terrain that dominates the inner regions of Thorn Isle. You curiously note that the usual fauna one might expect to find in such a setting (birds, squirrels, and the like) are nowhere to be seen. An unsettling silence hangs heavy over the island.
