Payment of Existence
Once a small fishing and masonry site for the Realm, they cut ties after Dorn rose to power. Now it is a veritable fortress, with a large wall facing out to sea and trained rangers scouting the forest day and night. It is a city driven by its leader, who demands further works to solidify the city’s defense. The work demanded is hard, but compassionately overseen, and those within the city receive just compensation.
A short distance northeast, the shadowlands now called The Grotto resides. The hungry ghosts there troubled the city until the Abyssals formerly commanded by the Silver Prince arrived and took the ghosts of Vakingrad and saw that they would protect the city in exchange for prayer offerings. This went awry when an army from the labyrinth poured out and destroyed both Vakingrad and Grotto.
