Before the Darkest Hour
The legends say that Skasnatr was once a centre of power during the Ilythiiri Empire, but was swallowed by the Nathalgal during the Crown wars. The ruins cover a large svathe of land in the western Nath but are barely visible above ground, and are covered in thick undergrowth and pine forest. There are many passages leading to the ruined halls below, though most of these passages remain sealed by the local woodsmen and ThrinTrinTar – a Greenmage that lives in the forests near the ruins. Halruaan wizards rarely venture here, although there are some conjurers that lead their apprentices there to hold lessons about the ethereal plane, as the Veil is thin in Skasnatr. During the evening – pockets leading to the realm of the Dark Fey open in nooks and dark places in the ruins, and close during the early morning hours.
