Dead Man's Wall
The World of Ankou was ravished by war thousands of years ago. Evil forces rose and nearly conquered the entire known world. With the help of necromantic magic a barrier was raised to protect the survivors located on Solas peninsula. The wall appears to be of pure obsidian and skulls can be seen inside, piled upon one another. The wall blasted anything living that approached from the north side with pure necrotic damage. The wall is fueled by that same energy. Any living creature killed near the wall would be infused with the energy, become undead and then reabsorbed by the wall. The more undead creatures absorbed by the wall the more power the wall had. Rocky outcroppings in the sea around the peninsula prevented any major sea assault and the people of the land practice from a young age to use many range weapons to push back any aerial assaults. Though the last major attempt to attack the peninsula has been over 300 years. A practice had been put in place that any criminals punished with a death sentence would have the sentence carried out by the wall to help provide some power to the wall. The assault 300 years ago was from the evil forces that had conquered so much of the world. They had been pushed back from other pockets of humanity that had risen up to fight back. It is not known what the world is like north of the wall during the present day for the practice to kill anything attempting to come over is still used. Some think it is time to venture forth and rejoin the rest of the world, many disagree. A common rumor that has started to take root is that the wall is almost to a point that it will fail if it is not given more power soon. With this fear gripping the land lesser and lesser crimes are given the strict punishment of death by Wall.
