Rise of the Thrall Lord
A stunted feeble attempt at a village, housing only a hundred poor souls, Haggentree huddles beneath a great lone tree. The one lone Acarion tree rising from the sparse plains of southeastern Thac can be seen for miles. It is all that is left of a once mighty grove of the sacred trees. The Emperor Narondon had them all cut down to build his armada of airships. When the twelve seers who lived in the grove predicted the downfall of his empire anyway, he nailed all twelve through the heart to the one remaining tree and left it standing as a monument to his power.
Ten of the great cold iron spikes used remain in the tree; and no known power can remove them. Legend has it that one was somehow removed by the hero Thesisus a hundred years ago and forged into the sword Soulbreaker. A second spike was recently removed by the Ranger Xellos who joined the Knights of the Couch on their raid on the Marsh Tower.
