Worg’s Rest lies some two days walk inland north-east, off the road, on the edges of The Enchanted Mountains. It was once a thriving settlement, but it has lain in ruins for the last two-hundred years or so. It was named so because its founder, name lost, is said to have slain a fierce Worg on the site. Seeing it as a fated sign, he settled his family there.
Historically, it was a thriving mining settlement, mining that incredibly precious metal, mithril, but once the mines dried up, the town slowly fell into decline. Every so often an adventurer gets it into his head to search the mines for any remaining mithril, but all come away disappointed. It is said many battles were fought there, throughout history, to secure the valuable mine.
Current rumours about the site are that someone has conscripted a large number of men, particularly engineers and miners, and brought them to the site. There have been a lot of attacks on hunters and farmers in the area, nobody is sure by what though.
