Taborean Geology

What monstrosity left this massive shell behind? In the northern reaches of Ravenfell rests a gigantic shell about the size of Tiktaalik residence - and as you can see, it's bigger than the palm trees.

Perhaps there need to be more Taborean geologists to study the sediment and fossils found on our maps. My theory is that maybe Ravenfell was once completely submerged by the sea, as evidenced by the very round and smooth mountains that suggest water wear, and a big aquatic shell wedged between two of those mountains.

My idea is that a huge currently undiscovered sea creature was swimming along between the two mountains (which would have been more like an underwater canyon) and got stuck, eventually expiring and leaving its hollow shell behind. It doesn't seem feasible to expect the primitive Tiktaaliks to have the technology to lift and strategically place a shell of that magnitude in a position that can withstand the elements. The only way to prove (or disprove) my theory is to have Taborean geologists study the sediment layers on the mountains and see what history they may uncover!


  1. I've always wondered about that shell, too. I remember (a while ago) seeing it for the first time and being blown away by how big it was.

    All I know is I wouldn't want to be attacked by one of those things if they existed. :8

  2. FLAN! Hey, Soliss from Govinda Server! Hai, we should talk! Trying to say this in the non-stalkerish way! :D
