Barons of the Stonelands
The Sunless Citadel
A once-proud fortress nestled close to the eastern border of the Stonelands that fell into the earth in an age long past. For centuries, the ruins have been home to clans of goblin brigands who use its pitch-black depths as a staging area and lair while harrying passing caravans. The most recent occupants, the Durbuluk tribe, have called the sunken debris home for over half a century.
Twelve years ago, the fallen druid Belak came to the Citadel after hearing rumors of a singular tree in the caves below. He has taken up residence as the caretaker of this “Gulthias Tree”.
Several months ago a clan of kobolds led by the sorceress Yusdrayl came to the Sunless Citadel in an attempt to take it for themselves. They have managed to claim a foothold, but are at a stalemate with the goblin occupants.
Recently, several parties of adventurers have plumbed the darkened depths of the Citadel. One one group has been successful.
