Everblack is, by all accounts, a terrible place. It is a large island of black rock and jagged coasts that make it a challenge to make shore on, though the look of the island would dissuade any who might pass close enough to see it’s black silhouette on the horizon. Everblack is nearly always under cover of dark cloud and harsh weather, and its several jagged peaks that line its coast and northern half reach well through the line of mists that hang overhead. At the island’s center, the land pinches together into a mile wide segment that effectively splits the island into an upper and lower half. At this separation stands the fortress of Blackport, a barrier between the calm lands of the South and vicious lands of the North.
The Northern segment of Everblack is home to some of the foulest beasts known and unknown to the civilized folk of Terrastrom. It is so foul of a place, in fact, that the divine faction of the Silver Flame has devoted much of its resources and efforts to cleansing the taint that seems to infect even the land itself in the North.
The Southern segment of Everblack is much less dangerous, but miserable all the same. The town of Gavony, a town consisting primarily of Dwarves that mine the adamantine below there, sits at the eastern curve of this lower half. At the Southern tip of Everblack is the town of Sara’ak, a town of vagabonds from all across Terrastrom that have formed a large fishing and hunting community.
While many who arrive on the island are affiliated with the Silver Flame and come to assist in the efforts to cleanse the land, there are others who arrive with different motives. Everblack is visited by many in search of ancient knowledge and forgotten treasures, for the land in the North is smothered by the ruins of times past. Dungeons, temples, vaults and things unknown lie beneath the earth and above in the foreboding lands beyond Blackport, calling brave or desperate souls to their fortune… or their doom.
Little is known about the lands deep into the North, and as such many explorers deem Everblack to be the final frontier above ground.
