The Market of Horns
Long thought by many mainlanders of Northern Syrth to be one of many legends surrounding
the Isle of Kiast , tales told in recent years by a few bold travelers seem
to suggest that The Market of Horns does indeed exist.
Supposedly The Market is open randomly, and only for a short duration. It gets its name because
it was founded as a place for poachers to sell their illegally obtained
horntail horns .
By all accounts The Market is a grim affair, presided over by the brigands and cutthroats that
run most of the illicit traffic to and from the island. It is rumoured that The Market is a haven
for sales containing pirate booty and other stolen goods.
There have been rumours of prominent Srythian mages traveling to The Market in secrecy, to obtain
illegal or hard to find pieces of magical equipment.
Perhaps the most disturbing of all the nefarious business conducted at the Market of Thorns is the
trade involving humans. Of all the stories surrounding The Market, the ones concerning the buying and
selling of slaves are the most chilling.
