Tertius: The Rise of Magic
North of the Cephil lies the lands of House Rybo, covering a great section of the Shadow Wood. Once a smaller house, they were known for creation of the boardstreet, and rewarded for that with custodianship of the Shadowpeak, but little else. Their lands expanded rapidly after the ancient golem sat in the throne of the fortress came to life and joined their household. It began to issue quotas and teach more efficient methods of harvesting the woods for rendering in Driftwood. This has altered the landscape of their lands dramatically, once verdant forests, now pockmarked with glades of stumps, and a dark fog in areas being actively cleared that cloys at the throat. Rumors of the undead are quite prevalent in the area, though the Dark Maidens have investigated and declared them just rumors.
