Hissing black rain begins to fall lightly when you enter – it is uncomfortable but harmless.
20 ft. high stone walls surround this courtyard strangled by dead trees and algae-caked fountains. The courtyard is open-topped, exposing the ashen sky above.
Beyond the trees, a colossal iron trapdoor 10 ft. to a side lies embedded in the ground. Torches surround it, each flickering in the rain. (Squares J16 - K17)
A maypole erected from polished humanoid spines rises from the center of the grove. Black and violet streamers dangle from the bones. (Squares P7 - Q8)
Spectral children skip stones on a pond of brackish water at its base.
The humid air is dense with the odor of rotting vegetation. The piercing screams of wyverns can be heard in the distance beyond the courtyard walls.
A blindfolded medusa with pallid skin crouches in a nearby wooden gazebo.
