This island was part of a series of 4 islands, until the landing
of Holy Isle in Spring 1101 AF. Then it became a lone island,
when the rest sank in the tidal wave that struck Mauritanja.
Since that time it has fallen into the hands of the Shadowkin,
who have closed the island down and setup a mist of confusion
around it, like the one that used to protect Mauritanja. Though
individuals have attempted to gain access to the island, these
attempts have generally been failures since the mists appeared
as the ritual circle is no longer accessible and is being maintained
by the Shadowkin. The Unicorn Navy continues to patrol the island,
but no Shadowkin ships have been spotted either in the mists or
Before that time the island was thinly forested, but had many
coves for docks and rich fishing stocks around it. Its main town
of Mantle was well populated as the first landing point before
the rest of the Shadow Isles, and the journey into the Boiling
seas of the West.
