Ivyheart Thicket is a forest south of Ironseat Ridge in the Dividing Plains.[1]

History[]

An unknown civilization existed in the Ivyheart Thicket during the Founding, which were discovered millennia later by historians and archeologists of the Alabaster Lyceum in Emon and, in the 836 PD, still remains under their study.[2]

At the western edges of these ruins are a vast, well decorated with ivy-crept marble pillars. Azer have flocked here from the Elemental Plane of Fire, and have made it their home, forging beautiful bronze weapons, armor, and art pieces. The Lyceum reports that elemental activity within the nearby redoubt of Inverspire is related to this elemental incursion, and might be connected to the fire giant stronghold of Vulkanon.[2]

Another source sees this elemental invasion as an effect of the fire strike by the ancient red dragon Thordak shortly before his attack on Emon. He hit the western edge of these ruins, leaving the fiery scar named the Blazing Foundry by Lyceum scholars. The dragon's reason for doing so is still unknown.[1]
