Wardlost is a wooden walled town situated at the beginning of the delta near Belfast. It is currently under the leadership of Captain Brandis, a courageous and resourceful leader. When the king (whose name is now cursed and is only refered to as The King) was suddenly assassinated by a mysterious assailant, his body was taken to the secret caverns, hoping to rest is ill-fated heart. But still he did haunt the Halls of Wardlost, and so the people gather whatever gold they had and begun to leave it at his coffin as a offering to the Raven Queen. However, this only left the town broke, but the hauntings did seem to cease, at least for now.
Wardlost is an important symbol for the nearby Tigle farmers, as Belfast is too far away to offer much protection, and as of late orc raids have been more frequent. But Captain Brandis is too broke and beaten to muster any sort of army, and so only relies of the bravery of a rugged militia.
