City of Splendors & Horrors
Foundation of Loss
A deep, black well, like an inverted tower, marks the place where Shar once lived. Her home now stands in the astral dominion of the Towers of Night, but the Mistress of the Night once all but ruled Shadow. Foundation of Loss is a reminder of that truth and a doorway to Shar’s new home. Palpable grief pervades the area, as if the site mourns her departure.
Bleak tales suggest that only Shar’s faithful can manage to visit the place and return. In fact, some take it upon themselves to find the Foundation in an unholy pilgrimage. Therefore, foul dangers and evil beings devoted to darkness surround the location. Unkindnesses of shadowravens emerge from the deep to harry and hunt the unwary.
Some say that secrets of creation and unmaking can be learned within the Foundation itself. Sorrowsworn birthed in the darkness guard those secrets, challenging all who seek their destiny within the hollow well.
