Lands of Eirth -- TTW Group
The isle of Malice is slightly northeast of Mt Everburn and is only known to be reachable by boat. 4 small towns, consisting mainly of a dock, and a few spare buildings dot each of the cardinal directions and are named after them: Northville, Easton, Weston, and Southville. Within the center of the isle is the city of Malice, sitting atop a large steep-faced plateau that was once thought to be a volcano. The city itself had been lost for some time, falling into near legend, though has recently (within the last decade) re-risen from the darkened caves it had lingered in by some unknown means. Cleanup continues to this date, even after a few years post-remergence.
The city itself is slowly filling with guilds and population as the city continues to convert to life above ground, and is ruled over by the half-demon half-dragon ruler known as Al’Keterek. How his strange lineage came about is unknown but features of each race are evident enough upon seeing him not to doubt reports. The city at this stage is open the whim of the half-demon, and his chaotic style of decision making is evident in his government. Troops are loyal to the chaos he seemingly inspires and it is rumored that the Lion Alliance already has scouts on the island to watch how the situation progresses less an outpouring of the agents of chaos find their way to the mainlands.
Trade is strong even given the small populace, as many guilds had small outposts on the island already. Transactions are typically done at the 4 satelite towns with docks. Main export seems to be stone, cut blocks, as well as obsidian and diamonds given the vulcanized layers that are known to exist in the region.
