Jyllaru Bone Caves
We rushed to the nearest cave to escape the approaching storm. Spotting an enticing glitter from within I led the team deeper into the cavern. Upon lighting the torches we beheld the most surprising discovery of our time...The Jyllaru Bone Caves are scattered about Jyllaru Island. Some contain treasures, some only dragon bones, and all hold an ancient mystery. What happened on Jyllaru to kill the dragons of the island, and why have none returned to reclaim it?

Society of Scientific Exploration and DiscoveryThe Society of Scientific Exploration and Discovery views the site as key in their research of dragons. Their quest for answers results in multiple simultaneous expeditions every year. Magical and scientific methods are utilized freely depending upon the purpose and leadership of the expedition. Speaking to the dead and necromancy have not been attempted since the tragic discovery of Rolph Duval's expedition. In addition to identifying the history of the Jyllaru Bone Caves, the SSED strives to understand the history of the dragons who lived there. A largely undisturbed collection of dragon treasure hoards tens of thousands of years old provides an unparalleled opportunity to study dragon culture and history. This also provides a significant incentive for looters, requiring the SSED to remain ever vigilant. They have therefore reached out to the Goldamings of Arcana to assist in defending the amazing find, in exchange for full access to any magical discoveries within the caves.
The Goldaming FamilyThe Goldaming Family has held several different hypothesis although the most popular claims that Ancient Magic was involved. The Goldamings are therefore particularly interested in the findings of the Society of Scientific Exploration and Discovery and periodically send their own expeditions as well, in addition to assisting the SSED with the security of the island.
Jyllaru is the large yet strangely abandoned island within the contient of Lokira. No large animals call Jyllaru home, and even the Feral Dragons keep their distance, although large collections of dragon bones have been discovered throughout its caves.
The feral dragon is a cunning sentient creature, capable of reason and well-versed in the manipulation of others for the dragon's personal gain. The term feral applies solely to the species' demeanor towards other sentient life.
