Shadows of Vesperton
Fort Fremont was a Glissian outpost located east of Regenesis, near Daruddelve and the Darud Mountains, in the part of Firststand formerly considered a part of the province of Daruddelve. Its primary function was to smelt ore produced by the mine, and mint the resulting precious metals into coins of the new nation’s currency. It also served as a treasury between shipments of the new coins to Regenesis.
An aspiring dwarven astronomer named Swodin Ingobar used Fort Fremont as his outdoor base to view the stars using an experimental scrying device of his own design. However, the device somehow created a connection to the Far Realm, turning the area around Fort Fremont into a zone of madness until the scrying device could be destroyed. This was a notable event in Glissia’s history, as it was through the investigation into Fort Fremont’s extended silence that Glissia’s government became aware of how close their nation was to Kenasia’s Keql Hoppan colony. This in turn led to a restructuring of Glissia’s provinces and government, and acceleration and expansion of its settlement in preparation for a possible conflict with Kenasia.
The fort has not been rebuilt, its former duties now being carried out in Daruddelve itself.
