* The city of New Halas, namesake of the original city of the Northmen destroyed
by cataclysm and war, sits in the heart of the isle of Erollis, a treacherous
land of biting temperatures and aggressive fauna within the freezing waters
of the Frostfang Sea. Originally a village of war hardened dwarves, it has since
grown due to being blessed by Mithaniel Marr and reconnected with the Shattered
Lands of Norrath. Pilgrims to New Halas can find their way there via a griffin
at the docks in the Butcherblock Mountains. New characters created for New Halas
will start at Pilgrim’s Landing, an encampment near the isle of Erollis,
in the zone Frostfang Sea.

Ice Dragon, Vrewwx! Consider yourselves warned, however… Before entering
