Origins of Magic
The Swamps of Ruurg
The northwestern swamps were formed through the corruptions of King Morlydd. His own insanity and corruption tainted the lands around him, turning this section of The Plains of Telara into the dead swamps that exist today.
Near the border of the Swamps of Ruurg and The Falgern Mountains is a deep cavern which was once the home of a powerful Black Dragon. These caverns lead all the way down to the bottom of The Great River Gorge, near the northern most bridge.
