Passage of Slerotin
This Passage is a thing of myth and legend, supposedly a pathway through a mountain into the caverns called The Caves of Chaos. Legend has it that many years ago, a powerful wizard used poweful magic to summon earth elementals to create the Passage. In doing this, the wizard was able to construct a profane idol to a evil god of chaos. Around the idol, he formed a complex maze of tunnels. Before long, many of the darker races arrived to dedicate themselves to the idol and its god. In a final act, the wizard opened a rift in the plans of existance, summoning forth a horrible race of reptile creatures to protect the idol. In preforming this ritual, the wizard sacraficed himself and ceased to exist. Since then, the shrine has existed, ebbing with power and lending strength to the powers of evil.
The Passage is guarded by a nameless evil thought to be from the very pits of Hades. It lurks in the darkness, striking out and devouring flesh, blood, and soul. It leaves only the shimmering bones of its victims, a dire warning to those who might enter its domain.
