History

Gauntlet Island most likely refers to gauntlet gloves, protective gloves sometimes used in falconry.

The Fort and IM have changed names 3 times to date. When first built by Candy Coated Chaos, the Fort was named "And all things nice" while the IM bore the name IM&M's (giving a Candy theme to the island).

Following Gauntlet IX, Ghostly Intentions renamed the Fort/IM to "Insert POE to Continue" and "Hack and Slash" respectively, changing the naming theme to reflect the 1980's video game Gauntlet

The Fort and IM were again renamed after Gauntlet XI when Good Grief took control of the island and the names remain to this date.

On a palm tree near the southeast coast, an inscription reads "This island were fashioned by Sophocles."
