The Reign of Darkness
Within the Foamfire Valley, beneath a stormy peak of the Cloudscape Mountains lies the Minotaur Gate – grand entrance to Saruun Khel, an ancient, subterranean minotaur nation. Though the nation had fallen into ruin centuries prior, about twenty-five years ago three wizards came and successfully established a stronghold there from which to trade with underground denizens – the Seven-Pillared Hall.
The ruins of Saruun Khel beyond the Seven-Pillared Hall are collectively called the Labyrinth. The ancient minotaur nation consisted of a vast maze of natural caverns, gaping chasms, hewn chambers, steep stairs, and twisting passageways. Most of these features remain to this day. Much of the Labyrinth remains dangerous and unexplored.
