Shimmerstone Cave

The Shimmerstone Cave is an area within Sparkfly Fen. There are two separate caves that make up this location. To the north there is a river carved tunnel that ends in a waterfall draining into the southern swamps of the Astrozintli Forelands. There are grubs, cave trolls, and a rich platinum vein guarded by a Champion Risen Spider and her brood. To the south there is a smaller dead-end cave that is occupied by a troop of Nightmare Court.
