    Many doors have been opened and closed in the World Serpent Inn, some frequently visited and others so rarely used they might as well be mistaken for a wall. The usage of these doors is different for each and every visitor of the planar inn, their calling singing inside their mind yet it's exact location unknown. The newest door to join the vast numbers of planar passage is no exception, leading to an mysterious island located in the Moonshae Isles.

    The Island

    alt text

    Past the mysterious passage through the World Serpent Inn, lies an ancient island. Dense forest cover the whole island, whilst the entire coastline appears to be made out of dramatic cliffs facing an unforgiving and violent sea. Razor sharp rocks lie hidden beneath the waves, muddy banks fade in and out with each turning of the tide. The land appears untamed, with orcan tribes living amongst the dense vegetation. There must once have been prior attempts at settling upon this island, judging by the crumbling ruins and forgotten memorials. The evidence of druidic activity is especially frequent, with many large dolmans, henges and other mysterious, megalithic structures.

    The few orcs whom are not attacking on sight as well as some shipwreck survivors, speak of this island as a cursed land causing misery, despair and destruction. Their claims are not unfounded, as sunken ships and ancient bones are scattered along the coast of the island. Along with the graves or forgotten bones of the previous settlers of this accursed island. Sadly, none appear to know who they were or what brought them to a sudden end many centuries ago. But they all agree it must have had to do with the island's curse.

    Geographically, the island appears to be somewhere along the edge of the Korinn Archipelago in the Moonshae Isles. Far away from any true settlement or trade route, due to it's cursed reputation. Indeed, there is rarely any ship nor boat sighted at all along it's dark and violent horizon. The only traces of such vessels are the numerous wrecks that surround the formidable coastline. The Western side of the island is equally impossible to reach, with dramatic cliffs and territorial orcs blocking passage further into the heart of the island.
