The King's throne was sculpted right out of the rock where it sits. Many months of work went into its exquisite details.
The Hand of the King has lived here as a recluse for a very long time... No one really knows what he eats.
One can admire the full splendor of the island from this vantage point. And the full extent of its infection by the Malaise.
