Nice! […]

(Nice if you’re like me and HATE handing out maps with numbers detailing the hotspots…   First of all, this keep/village provides multiple levels of fortification – all but the southern shore of the island sports massive, rugged cliffs that jut from the ocean. The southern shore also sports a significant array of […]
