The 262nd Map of the Week is from the second Jörðgarð (TM) Trails adventure on the Fallen Empire Trail, "Draug Hunters." The map shows castle complex on the main island of the Misty Spring area. Misty Spring is a large lake that is fed by a spring. The lake is the source of the Fogwater River. Unknown to most, there are sseveral populated islands upon the lake. It is a hidden area, constantly covered by a magical fog.
Much of the old baronial castle stands empty today. The rest has been converted, for the most part, for other uses than when Austamæra barons still ruled and resided here. It took considerable work to restore the castle. Most of it
was made possible by the castle island tinker, Melkólmur, and one of the outer island rangers, Erlendur, who turned his refuge into a makeshift sawmill and who made himself into something of a do-it-yourself sawyer. Fortunately,
most of the supplies that Melkólmur and Erlendur need were found in a castle storage center, where many of the still remain.
