Coldrunner Key is the 13th island in the Hunting Grounds.


The icy flats of Coldrunner Key were once expected to serve as airfields for the rich mineral wealth the Ostians planned to extract from the island. But their swift, sleek "coldrunner" freighters proved no match for the Behemoths who started attacking Ostian operations as soon as the miners unearthed archonite.

Frozen Gruk-Gruk.png Frozen Gruk-Gruk There's no telling how long ago this gruk-gruk shuffled off this mortal coil—the ice surrounding the corpse has preserved it perfectly. Although it may have been here for a week or a century, it's probably safe to eat if you don't mind freezerburn. And mild aether poisoning. And picking jagged, metallic pin-bones with your teeth. Really? There are easier ways to make a ham sandwich.
Elder States.png Elder States Behemoths from possible realities in which humanity has lost the war against their ancient creations, Elders display the cunning and intelligence (if not true sapience) born of lifetimes counted in centuries. Wielding the wreckage of human civilization to fight their creators, Elder Behemoths often leave behind hunks of scrap like this—strange, aether-wrought, and blunt tools torn from one of many potential futures.
