The Den of thieves was once an enclave of rouges, thieves, cut purses, con men and other shady types. They built the den to protect their stolen goods. and as a refuge away from the long arm of the law. They used the complex for the fencing of the goods as well as “information gathering sessions” which often involved the rack and a hot poker.

The Forsaken house of Evil, is not this place’s original name. No one remembers what it was called before, but its current moniker is apt. A Dark and foreboding place, the local fishermen steer clear of the island and the bridge to the main land was destroyed a long time ago.
Dark clouds and strange purple lightning storms roll across the island, and strange lights can be seen floating through the old buildings and across the courtyards at night.

Eventually they exhausted the resources available to them, and where left with a choice to make. Stay in their ancestral home or wander the land looking for a new place to call home. The Thane decided they should leave, but not everyone was happy with this decision. It led to a civil war, and the ultimate destruction of the clan Stonehammer.
This Church is dedicated to the god of The Eternal Flame. The Church of the Eternal Flame is dedicated to routing out corruption and Evil wherever it can be found.
