Urthadar goes on to inform you that Princess Maiar of the city state of Len Varial has sent messengers asking for an audience with you all. He does not know what is behind her summons, but the matter seems to be urgent. The road to Len Varial is long, but Urthadar can supply you food, water, and accommodations for the journey. He suggests you depart as soon as possible.
As you are preparing to leave, you are contacted by your agent from the black network. He informs you that your road to Len Varial passes near the site of some artifacts you have been seeking. The first such site is the dungeons beneath the ruins of the Gloomfrost Tower. This had been the tower of an archmage, rumored to have been driven mad by his dealings with the abyss in gaining his arcane knowledge. The dungeons underneath his tower were rumored to house portals to the abyss, from which demons and undead entered into his underground corridors. Also, tunnels underneath his tower are rumored to connect to the underground realm inhabited by evil drow and other monstrosities. Trafficking with these evil beings of all kinds soon came to an abrupt end, as the wizard was rumored to fall prey to the very demons he sought to control, and his tower was leveled to the ground. Adventurers still come to seek the entrance to the dungeons, and rumors persist that the halls are filled with demons and undead left behind in the wake of the catastrophe that occurred. Other inhabitants of the deep world are rumored to have been encountered as well. Among the treasure rumored to still be waiting there, the sword of Uruk (a shielding sword) is rumored to have been lost there.
