Kyne's Aegis entrance

Kyne's Aegis is an island bastion in the Sea of Ghosts. It is located on an island north of Solitude. Its original purpose was to be a bulwark against northern invasions which approached the coast via the easiest channel. Thane Ogvar was given ownership over the fort and over time, it morphed into a northern fishing village in addition to a fort. The island's gold veins have led to the Thane establishing a mining operation. Until recently, the fort has remained peaceful with only the occasional northern squall cropping up to cause concern. The transformation of the island to a fishing and mining spot has led to the slow decline of the fort.

A short time ago, tremendously large longships appeared to the north. Before a proper defense could be mustered, these ships crashed into the island, disgorging Sea Giants and Half-Giants onto the island, led by a powerful Vampire lord. These creatures of myth quickly overwhelmed the northern island and have begun the assault of the fort proper.

With the island threatened, the Thane has sent for assistance from anyone that can reach the island.
