Beneath the Borderlands
Nuromen the Black was a powerful wizard who gathered a number of followers to his tower in the wilderness. Here they built a small village known as Law’s End because it lay beyond the reach of all kings. Before knowledge of Nuromen’s terrible debaucheries, rituals and experimentation had spread, Yysod the elf lord tried to befriend him, sending as an emissary his son Rhivum, who was never heard from again. Nuromen finally brought destruction upon himself and the people of Law’s End by tampering with the forces beyond his control. People living in the nearby hamlet of Wodfeld saw a terrible fiery light over the region of Law’s End. An expedition was mounted and the folk of Law’s End were discovered dead in their streets and homes. There was no sign of Nuromen, and his tower lay in smoldering ruins. From that day forward the people have shunned the ruins of Law’s End, believing that a just recompense came upon that folk for their evil doings.
