Mire of the Forgotten
On the Northern tip of the Mainland, surrounded by the foreboding peaks of the Ashtop Mountains, a mire of utter mystery lays untouched for all of written history. The Mire of the Forgotten has always been a place of frustration for explorers and historians, as traversing its foul swamps spells death without mitigation. Mages have been lost forever attempting to teleport into the mire, its energies twisted by some strange anomaly. Explorers and scouts viewing the mire from the heights of the Ashtop mountains report a foul and acrid smell emitted from the lands below, accompanied by a constant mist that creeps endlessly in a slow spiral around a central peak. Atop this peak is a massive iron tower, visible from afar above the cloud of fog. No one knows what lies within the tower, nor the stretching landscape below. Anyone foolish enough to test their luck within and return with tales of their travels succumb to a sickness of the body and mind, a sickness which no healer can remedy.
And with no one of any caliber capable of solving the mysteries of the mire, it has simply been forgotten. No wars are waged for its lands. No paths are carved through the mountains. All people know of it, but nothing of its secrets. The Mire of the Forgotten shall remain as it is named.
