A Shadow over Akeroth
Jarl is an Island sub-continent located of the coast of Kul’Adar, North of Landes, directly East of Reach and its’ kingdoms of Reach, Hollow, and Cavanit, and South of the Blood Sea. Jarl is slightly mountainous area with beaches sitting 30 feet below the cliffs that make up the mainland of Jarl.
In 13A an outbreak of the Dread Plague on the island caused the complete destruction of all life on the island; due to the infighting of the City-States The Undead Host was able to overrun each City-State before they could mount a combined defence. It was directly because of the annihilation of Jarl that Lendoria was formed between the various City-States on the coast and on Landes.
Today Jarl is a barren and desolate land, the plague has effectively infected the vary land itself, and sailors avoid it at all costs in fear of the possibility of infection; the few ships that pass close enough talk of twisted and disturbing monstrosities walking amonst the landscape, and some even speak of living beings commanding them, but these are all just drunken sailors tales as no one has gone on to the island in almost one thousand years since the plague took a hold of it.
