Arl'Skellig

The home of the Warborn, equally the most peaceful and violent culture. Each isle has its own clan and leader, yet one High King rules over all.
Arl’Skellig is south-east of Dawnforge, it is swathed with large forests, snow-covered mountains and harsh coasts.

Each island is home to a different clan, as well as many monsters. Each land is harsh, harsher still given the conditions.

“Skeggold! Skalmold! Skelgordnir kloifinir!”

Warborn battlecry

“Take me down to the riverbend,
Take me down to the fighting end.”
