A small island of the Nettlewood coast that is said by some to resemble a decapitated head. It is home to the Thistletop Goblins.

A rope bridge spans the gulf between the cliff and the roundish, flat-topped island sixty-some feet to the north. Thick patches of nettles and briars grow here and there atop the island, but its most impressive feature is a wooden one-story stockade. Two thirty-foot-tall watch towers guard the stockade’s southern facade.

The stockade is made of thick wood. Closer inspection reveals that most of the wood seems to have been scavenged from ships – a few nameplates remain affixed to some of the beams, while other timbers look like they might have once been masts.

Below the stockade is a dungeon of fairly recent construction. This appears to have once been a secret shrine to Lamashtu, taken up as a lair by Nualia and her gang.

Hidden behind a secret door in the archeology room is a stairway leading to a much older complex below.
