The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
Rising out the deep, frigid waters of
Lake Ironrain's northwest corner,
the small island known as Thorn Isle has long been the centre
of many local legends.
The island earned its name due to the thorny vines that cover much
of its hilly, thickly-forested terrain.
An abandoned tower stands in the midst of the tangled patch of
forest that covers the isle. Local legends tell of a light that can
be seen, now and again, coming from the top of the tower. Many believe
that a magical beacon still burns somewhere atop the structure.
While many believe that Thorn Isle is a remnant of a legendary island that
is said to have sunk beneath the icy waters of the lake long ago, there
are just as many eager to dispel the notion.
The closest settlement to Thorn Isle is the town of Irongard, which is spread
along the edge of a cove, on the northwest shoulder of Lake Ironrain. Thorn Isle
is approximately a mile beyond the mouth of the cove, though plainly visible from
The people of Irongard, and those of the lake region in general, believe that
Thorn Isle is a dangerous, cursed place.
A handful of adventurers have, over the years, ventured onto the isle, though
no detailed accounts of their explorations remain.
