The Karak Lode
Generations ago the Ironfell clan made forays in search of mineral wealth in the deserts beyond the Thornwaste and established a mine they called the Karak Lode.
Over long years, Karak became a legendary source of wealth as its folk pulled rich deposits of gold, silver, and other precious metals from beneath the desert sands. A supply depot was established at the desert’s edge to service the caravans traveling between the mine and other trade routes, but the location of the Karak Lode was kept a closely guarded secret.
Following the defeat of Shephatiah, Queen of the Drylands the mines were collapsed to prevent anyone accessing the corrupted mines below.
