Hello Illyrians!

With the announcement of the Broken Lands expansion, we thought it would be nice to allow players a chance to leave their mark on the new world by helping us name one of the faction hubs. As you may know, faction hubs are permanent structures on the land and are used as the center of activity for NPC factions. Best of luck to all, and thanks for helping us with this project! :)

How to Enter:
Reply to this forum thread with a suggestion for a name for the faction hub described and pictured below. Each person may suggest up to 3 name ideas, but only one winner will be chosen. On February 28 the dev team will review all submissions and choose the best name idea to be used permanently in game. The winning player will receive 200 Prestige as their prize.

The faction hub you will be naming was the center of the now defunct Order of Silver Light. It was the center of the great Sundering that tore the Broken Lands apart. Below is the description from the faction describing the discovery of the location. The hub itself is pictured in the black tower on the left. It is located in the southeast of the Broken Lands on the dead island pictured in the center of the map on the right. 

  

Description:

From the daily reports of Commander Cirian Danorian, deep reconnaissance mission.
Day 12, evening: We are approaching the centre of the Sundering. The mountain before us looks unnatural, black and baked. Our scribe tells us that when the Sundering came, the very rock around here rolled and burned, becoming a tossing sea of fire. The mountain looks like that. It looks like a wave that has been frozen and turned black.
Day 13, afternoon: We have reached the mountain. There is no soil here, nothing can grow on it. It is just brittle, hard rock. It is also warm to the touch.
Day 14, afternoon: The mountain that we saw was not unique. As we marched today we were flanked by more mountains the same, barren and black. There is little wildlife here, and we have seen no hunters or settlers for some time.
Day 15, evening: We have reached the Great Moat. Beyond it we can see a huge island, encircled by it. The island is of this same black stone. We have set out night-lines and fish traps on the Great Moat, but the water itself tastes brackish, so I hold out little hope of fish for breakfast.
Day 16, morning: No fish for breakfast. The Great Moat is dead, as far as we can tell. We discussed finding some trees and building a boat, sailing across to the island beyond. All agreed that it would be possible. Nobody argued for it. From here the island looks barren, and we know that the water is dead, so there will be no food. None of us have heard of any expedition returning from the island. Rumours tell of ancient magics plaguing the land, and unnatural armies that still serve lost masters. We have no need to go there just to find out what kills all who attempt it.
Day 16, noon: We followed the coast of the Great Moat for the morning, and will now turn away from the island. Somewhere on there, legend says, the greatest stronghold of the Order of the Silver Light still stands. From there they unleashed the Sundering. And when the stones burned and the mountains rolled like waves, the tower stood untouched, enduring through it all. So the legend says. We are content to leave that legend untested, and we will move on.
