The Legend of Dragon Lagoon Fort

Dragon Lagoon Fort, built by King Pilin during the second Dark Era, stands as a testament to human resilience. Guided by the mysterious Azure Dragon, King Pilin chose the fort’s strategic location.

The fort has never fallen to monsters, who seem to sense and respect the dragon’s ancient presence, leaving it untouched. This enduring fortress remains a beacon of hope in Elor.

Dragon Lagoon Fort has never fallen to monstrous assaults. Its stone walls stand tall, overlooking the lagoon to the east and providing a strategic vantage point. During times of danger, the fort is always evacuated, yet remains miraculously untouched by the monsters. People believe that the monsters sense the Azure Dragon’s ancient presence and leave the fort in reverence. This enduring fortress is a beacon of hope, a silent guardian watching over Elor.
