The Shattered World
The Dread Isle, also known as the Isle of Shadow, is one of the largest islands in The Archipelago, situated near the western point. It was one of the regions most heavily tainted by the Shadow Incursion, and has not borne that scar well.
The Dread Isle is always wreathed in a shadowy darkness, and seems to never see the sunlight, even on the clearest of days. Even coming near to it fills the bravest of souls with dread, and it is now home to terrible, twisted shadow creatures.
It is rumored that the Circle Arcanum once had one of their largest caches of “confiscated” magical items in the middle of the island, however no one foolhardy enough to attempt to retrieve them has yet returned.
