"A matronly crone came down from the mountains, feather-winged and ever-shrouded. She delivered a message straight from the Dawn of Karth. The blood of Men will spill upon the soil, for their trials must be lived in bitterness and pain." —Vateshran Allaghach
Briar Rock Ruins

Briar Rock Ruins is a ruin located in the southwestern corner of the Reach. The ruins are currently inhabited by the hostile Thornroot Clan and their hagravens. The Thornroots have been kidnapping members of other clans and transforming them into briarheart warriors against their will.

Minotaurs roam the bank of the river flowing in front of the ruins and down the valley, while herons hunt for fish along the river's edge. A heavy sack is located by the waterfall in front of the ruins, to the west. A minotaur is bathing beneath said waterfall. A Minotaur Shaman kneels next to a chest spawn point on the western bank of the Karth River.
