The vast region known as Twinpools in the far western highlands is marked by Ashpool to its south and Banepool to its north. As it lies on the border of Dravanian territory, it has served as a theater for countless historic battles during the Dragonsong War.

The Dusk Vigil

The Calamity was not kind to this once-proud watchtower, from which Ser Yuhelmeric and the brave knights of House Durendaire once stood watch against the encroaching Horde. Since the walls fell and the chill took hold, it has come to be inhabited by all manner of fell beasts, and gods only know what else.

The Dreaming Dragon

What appears to be an island floating amidst the icy waters of Ashpool is said to have once been a living, breathing dragon-magicked into slumber by the Holy See until ash enveloped its body and its limbs turned nigh unto stone.

The Bed of Bones

It remains to be confirmed whether yetis prefer to slumber atop makeshift bedding fashioned from, the remains of their victims - in large part because prominent naturalists have been reluctant to do the fieldwork necessary to corroborate this claim.

The Slate Mountains

These mountains on the outskirts of Ishgard were valued as a mining site for slate of exceptional quality. Three years past, the knights of House Dzemael attempted to carve an Ishgardian stronghold into the cliffs, enraging the dragon Cuelebre and his followers. Remnants of the gruesome battle that followed still lie scattered about the crags, unable to decay in the chilled altitude.

Said to be as scalding as a wyrm's breath, Dragonspit is a colorful analogy for the hot springs nestled between the cliffs near the Slate Mountains. Local wildlife has long been attracted to the warmth of the natural thermal pools, and their numbers have only increased following the advent of the long winter. The steaming springs are also frequented by Ishgardian knights, who laud them for their supposed healing properties.
