The forest grassland lying in the dale is dense, but the remnants of an old road provide fairly easy access to Schildpad. Scouts report the northern, limestone cliffs has a system of caverns.

Moaning Bog

The bog that lies at the end of a large river that drains into the sea.  Scouts have claimed seeing a great winged beast prowling the swamp. The ruins of Blackmarsh Port lie on the eastern side of the bog. The bog is infested with zombies that have fallen into the river and been swept downstream. On a windy day the sounds of moaning zombies can be heard emanating from the swamp.

Ruins

Blackmarsh Port

Blackmarsh Port was a smuggler's haven before the Dark Times, and no word has been heard from it since. All that's known is the few conflicting tales that came from the survivors. Some claimed the swamp came alive and took the residents, while others speak of strange winged beasts that swooped down from the skies. Despite it's poor reputation, the city was known for making swift, shallow hulled boats and ships; the kind perfect for smuggling.
