Isle Royale is the homeland of the Elves of Lake Superior. Before their arrival several hundred years earlier, it was home to the Plano People, who mined it for copper.
The island is the key site of commerce and culture for the men, elves, and dwarves of the Lake, and enjoys a central location and many natural resources including copious minerals, natural caves, and an old-growth hardwood forest.
