Xantari's Night Below
Great Rock Dale
This is the one area within Haranshire where some humanoid menace is known to exist. The rock dale has sides which descend almost sheer for 100 to 180 feet, varying from place to place. In a handful of locations, it is possible to clamber down a rock escarpment, though this is hazardous. Scrub trees and bushes grow on the cliff faces and in the base of the dale itself. There are many caves in the dale, and around a third of the dale floor is covered with shallow pools, though the area so covered and the depth of the water varies with the seasons.
Hidden in a jumble of rock and scrub growth down here is this 6’ tall obelisk of rosy-striped limestone. It is not visible from more than 100 feet away. It is obviously unlike anything else in the Dale, being smooth and Unusually colored. Tremolo has detected this stone as Magic, and has been smote by it when he tried to chip a piece off.
