4th Edition Campaign
Twenty-five years ago, a group of three wizards and many retainers were able to clear the upper levels of a labyrinth formerly known as Saruun Khel, the great kingdom of the minotaurs in centuries past. There, they established the Seven-Pillared Hall, a stronghold used to open trade routes with the denizens of the Underdark. The three wizards established an order known as The Mages of Saruun to keep order in the Seven-Pillared Hall and its immediate surroundings. One of the Order, a relatively new recruit by the name of Paldemar, turned on the Order. He began a slave trade through the Hall with the ultimate goals of using those slaves to uncover demonic ruins and sacrificing the slaves to Vecna. Paldemar found an ancient shrine to Vecna known as the Tower of Mysteries, that predates even the kingdom of Saruun Khell itself, where he conducted his dark rituals. Paldemar and all of his associates were slain and order was restored back to the Hall.
