The Mountains of Freedom, north of Moonshade on the eastern island of Serpent Isle.

Description[edit]

A prison, riddled with devilish traps, where the mages of Moonshade send everyone they want to be rid of.

Once this prison was a mine, where the mages were able to find Stoneheart, but after the substance was made illegal, since it was used to produce blood spawn, the mine was converted to a huge prison riddled with so many difficult mazes and traps, that no one could ever hope to escape, making the sentence "imprisonment until escape" a cruel joke. The name became a real cynicism. The first two to actually escape were the Avatar and Stefano. The Avatar, after being thrown into this prison, had to overcome a number of obstacles, before being confronted with Lorthondo, a mage using the dungeon as a place to terrorize the people. By calling the daemon, Arcadion, to destroy him, the Avatar was able to escape the prison.

For a solution to the problem, see here: Solution.

Inhabitants[edit]

  • Automatons, provisioners.
  • Lorthondo, a mage using the dungeon as a place to terrorize the people.
  • a Ranger, who is grieving over Sabrina.
  • Sabrina, a woman who is sleeping on a stone bier inside one of the cells.
  • Stefano, a thief who originally came from Moonshade. Can join the Avatar to escape.

Lore[edit]

This mountain range lies due north of Moonshade. There is little of interest within its peaks and valleys, but many people seeking to avoid the unpleasant aspects of larger societies often head for its areas of solitude. There is talk of converting the caverns of Freedom into a prison - the irony of this conversion delights me, but I know not whether anything will come of the plan.
