Nentir Vale Chronicles
The striking peak is the largest of the Old Hills. Beneath Thunderspire Lies the ancient minotaur city of Saruun Khel. The minotaur kingdom fell almost a hundred years before Fallcrest was established, when a struggle for succession led to a vicious civil war. In the upper halls of the minotaur city, the mysterious order of wizards known as the Mages of Saruun have established a secretive strong-hold known as the Seven-Pillared Hall; Merchants passing along the Trade Road sometimes take shelter here.
1. The Minotaur Gate The grand entrance to Saruun Khel consists of a stone archway standing some 50 feet tall flanked by menacing statues of minotaur warriors.
2. The Road of Lanterns Beyond the Minotaur Gate, the Road of Lanterns descends into the heart of the mountain. Odd lanterns emitting an eerie green light from no apparent source are interspersed along its length, and huge demonic statues stand watch along the corridor’s length. This passage eventually terminates at the entrance to the Seven Pillared Hall.
3.The Seven Pillared Hall A makeshift town of sorts has sprung up in this ancient minotaur marketplace. Overseen by the mysterious Mages of Saruun and their imposing construct guardians, a tenuous peace allows merchants and traders of all races to conduct business under the watchful eye of the wizards.
4.The Chamber of Eyes This ruined shrine to Torog recently served as a base of operations for the Bloodreaver slavers. Due to the actions of our intrepid adventurers, the Bloodreavers are all but destroyed, with only a fraction of their number surviving the onslaught. This site now lies dormant.
