Overview

Black River Island sits at the mouth of the Black River and is home to a small colony of Sanctus explorers.
Black-river-island-map
It is the gateway to a vast continent. The bayou is home to primitive bullywug and lizardfolk clans. There are four eladrin tombs of seasons on the North, West, South, and East edges of the bayou. Beyond the bayou are plains inhabited by giants that stretch to the foot of a mountain range, where the Dragonborne of the Watch guard the gateway to a citadel. To the east, beyond the Copper Hills, kobolds and goblins mine the hills to pay tax and tribute to a Red Dragon named Rosinth. A long-gone wizard's tower is the gateway to the feywild.
