The Shattered Gates
Valley of Obelisks
The Valley of Obelisks is so named for a many black stone obelisks that pepper the entire vale. It is cut in half by the Marrilach River. Its largest city is Sumberton, which lies almost in the very center of the Valley. The Valley is mostly isolated from the surrounding areas, with only three easy ways to enter.
North of the Valley is mostly wild crags. The road North is guarded by the fortress-town Hemyulak, but the valley rarely gets many visitors from the crag land denizens. The road in the east is also rarely used due to the recent gnoll activity. That way is protected by the fortress and Sumberton guard outside the town Kel’s Rise. The most frequently used route in and out of the Valley is by the Marrilach, which flows out of the southwest end of the Valley but not before passing Castle Pendrant.
