Stoneholt

By:

A city large enough to contain kingdoms.

To the traveller, and resident alike, Stoneholt is about one thing. Size.

This, the greatest of cities on the World of Neyathis is a momument to the engineering ability of a long lost race of giants. Vast stone walls (60 - 80’ in height) stand oppressively casting deep shadows even in the middle of the day.

Entering the city presents the traveller with the massive gatehouses, wide enough to march an army through, and high enought to admit a tallship. One can see the massive stones used to build the structure though the mind boggles at the thought of the effort required to move them. The entire city screams Not Built by Puny Humans.

Once past the massive gates, the traveller gains no respite from the overpowering presence. It is a vast city built for beings more then two stories tall! And even to those ancient giants the city would have seemed huge.

The area enveloped by the huge curtain walls is sufficent to contain entire kingdoms, and here it does.

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
