|Location:||The Spine of Ursum|
The Deadwood was once called the Oakwood, named for the huge oaks which dominate it. It was the site of a great massacre, over a hundred years ago. A minor noble house called the Oak House, rose up in revolt against the Azure House and were ruthlessly and efficiently put down. The local Azure noble put every member of the Oak House to death, crucifying them in the Oakwood from which they took their name. The Oakwood was cursed that day and the spirits of the crucified have never found rest. Now the Deadwood is infested with the restless spirits of those who were put to death here.
