Rainy Night in Ptolus
Within Eternity Cave, two massive natural columns rise almost two hundred feet to the cavern ceiling. The eastern one, Kaled Del, is honeycombed with chambers and passages crafted by the Stonelost dwarves. It serves as home for over four hundred. Within Kaled Del, the dwarves work tirelessly at forges and in workshops, mainly to keep their minds off of the legacy that they lost when Dwarvenhearth fell to Ghul’s forces.
Originally, Kaled Del was built to act as a watchtower to keep vigil over one of the remaining relatively accessible entrances to the ancient dwarven city. That duty has become much more vital in the last few years, when explorers once again search for a way into Dwarvenhearth. The folk of Kaled Del are not as self-sufficient as their fathers in Dwarvenhearth were. They rely on Ptolus, trading gems and forged items for food, wood, paper, cloth, and other goods.
