Thorn Island was located in the Moonsea, south of the civilized portion of the city of Phlan out in the Bay of Phlan.[2]

GeographyEdit

The island was shaped like a tear with Sokol Keep sitting on the western portion.[1] It was said by many Phlanites the island was practically invisible in the pitch blackness of night.[3] A ring of rocks protected the island where many ships had broken apart on in the past.[4] However, rowboats could navigate through the rocky coast to reach the sandy shore as long as the sailors were patient.[5]

StructureEdit

Sokol Keep covered most of the island and could be seen from the docks. The shoreline had a low slate sheer cliff that supported the keep above.[5]

HistoryEdit

In 1340 DR,[6] Ren o' the Blade, Shal Bal of Cormyr, and Tarl Desanea traveled to the island to seek the evil within Sokol Keep.[7]

In 1480 DR, Thorn Island and Sokol Keep were under the authority of House Sokol.[8]
