Heres an update on Shanadan and what I've learned so far:

When you pull your boat in your at a rocky beach the only mobs there are
Rock Crawlers, there are rocks and stones everywhere and I found a
particular one with a handprint 'touch handprint' sprouted up another rock
crawler from the ground.
As you continue Northish you'll bump into a 'Rock Guardian' that won't let
you pass into the castle, it's VERY strong I've seen it do 600 damage
rounds and it has an incredible amount of hp!  When it dies it becomes a
'Large Boulder' that continues to block your path, it's best to bump it
before it dies so you can go around it, also i beleive it can be pushed out
of the way with enough strength.
North of the guardian you enter the gardens full of Nasty plants which have
a different kind of poison - it drains all your stats until your lowest
stat hits 1 so it can drain up to (your lowest stat) - 1 from all your
stats.  The gardens continue east and west and there are hidden paths,
which can be easily distinguished by the room description.  North of the
garden's is Shanadan Castle.
The castle has a few different floors, the bottom is full of Archivers and
in rooms where you hear rats in the walls you can 'touch wall', this will
cause one of two things:  6 rats will come out of their hole and attack you
or rat droppings will fall out of their hole which does nothing.
The middle floor is just full of residents staying at the castle, ogre
guards, and a supervisor which asks you for help with sweeping the castle.
The top floor has A shopkeeper which sells Mana Gems, Alchemy tomes, and
Ingredient pouches, north of him is a cauldron where you can brew your own
potions with the proper ingredients.  The west side of the top floor has
wooden chests you can open and take stuff from, alchemy racks, ogre guards

in pairs of two, residents, castle archers, and residents staying at the
castle.  To get to the east wing of the castle you'll need to either
lockpick the door or find the silver key hidden in one of the chests to
enter.  Theres a statue there which you should kneel before otherwise the
mobs in their will auto you!  There are some more guards, and an 'Ogre
Ward' who's pretty strong and blocks passage into the high court room.  In
the high court room there a very strong drow named Myrg and a servant. 
From the top floor you can access the roof of the castle which has archers,
guards and a small fire in the middle.
