- This article is about the location near Absalom. For the Pathfinder Adventure Path, see Tyrant's Grasp (adventure path).
The Tyrant's Grasp is a blasted wasteland stretching roughly 15 miles across the Cairnlands on the southeastern Isle of Kortos, northeast of Absalom. The site of the Whispering Tyrant's defeat in 4719 AR, the resulting magical explosion wrenched his right hand from his wrist and embedded it within the land itself. Whispering Way cultists flock to the Tyrant's Grasp, seeing it as the most likely beachhead where their leader can reclaim his hand and the Starstone; three of their attempts have been thwarted by the First Guard, but their number continues to grow. Undead creatures are notably more powerful and numerous within the Tyrant's Grasp.12
