Mon Nov 17th, 2014
With the 180th Map of the Week, we take a look at Witch Towers, the ruling
seat of the northwestern island kingdom Northland, the largest realm of the
Dark Elves known in the western joerdh. Northland is under the harsh rule
of the Witch Queen Luohi, who has robbed most of her dark elven subjects of
a part of their intelligence in order to use it to augment her own power.

Key to the Map of Witch Towers:

GAME MASTER'S NOTE: Graphically, the map shows Witch Towers during the warm
season. During the cold part of the year, most of this area is under snow.
The unnumbered buildings all are dark elf huts.
