The Second Rise of the Phoenix Legion
It, like the rest of Northland, was abandoned to the demi-humans in the fall, and later the undead. Reclaiming it was a major goal of the Phoenix Legion, so that it could serve as a fortress against invasions from the Hive and supply the many outriders and rangers who worked in the area.
It remains an important outpost of the Phoenix Legion, and it has grown with civilians as well. It was, and still is, a very popular destination for people seeking a fresh start, or wanting to make a name for themselves.
