The Serpent Kingdoms
The Arnrock is an active volcano above the fault line that runs under the Lake of Steam. It is a hostile environment, and has been known to claim many an adventurer. There is little known about this island, but reports from ships claim that there are small settlements of sanguine situated along the shores of the island. It is said that when the volcano erupts, they abandon their little huts and retreat into the water and subsequently attack vessels that come near to rebuild their settlements. Many speculate that the sanguine have acquired much treasure from ships felled in this way.Most shipping traffic stays far away from the Arnrock due to the dangerous whirlpools that encompass the island. The greatest of these whirlpools is located just southeast of the island and is known as “the eye of Gruumsh” because of the number of vessels consumed by its current.
