Necropolis of Nalbranath
The Necropolis of Nalbranath is located deep in the Stonefang Mountains. Passage to the Cavern where the Necropolis lies is obtained by traveling through the vast caves between Nalbranath and the edge of the Mountain range in Thanaroth. The Necropolis is quite expansive and is home to thousands of undead. The cavern is very open and the ceiling has a large hole that serves as a skylight for the entire city. The city walls are quite tall and have been patrolled by undead archers since the Tragedy of Nalbranath a few centuries ago.
The Necropolis of Nalbranath has been very active in the past few centuries, though its activities, thus far, have not extended past the cavern in which it dwells. No one has dared to investigate close enough to find out what exactly it is that the undead are doing within the Necropolis walls. Many people just know to stay away from this passage through the Stonefang Mountains and the Dwarves of Nalbranath protect the eastern entrance within the borders of Elbereth. Some of the most prestigious scholars have theories related to the Archlich Jeth’Ramar, but very little evidence remains that could support this, and none are bold enough to find out for sure.
