Crosswind Hold is the main location in the Realm where the Magistrate resides. It was here where the Second Goblin Scourge was repelled, and later where the Magistrate was founded. It is here where Stone Keep, Magistrate's Archives, Trade District, Splitstone Quarry, and Foreman's Rise all reside; the village of Seris resided here as well before it was destroyed by the Abyss.

Stone Keep (Shadows Update)
"Stone Keep is the birthplace of the Magistrate, formed in the very location from where the Second Goblin Scourge was repelled by the first iteration of the Paladins, the Realm's Champions. The Magistrate's finest, troops and commanders alike, proudly hail from the heart of the Paladins' greatest accomplishment."
"The Archives contain far more than dusty tomes and antique scrolls. It houses histories and magics long forgotten by the Realm, insights to the nature of the Abyss, and some of the more enigmatic discoveries of the Deepwerks."
"The bulk of the crystals in use throughout the realm were sourced from Splitstone Quarry. Most of its inhabitants are Goblins, now peaceful, who have found lucrative work in the mines of the Realm."
