  • Influence 500
  • Power 2

Descriptions[edit | edit source]

A Blocked Doorway[edit | edit source]

Avanthum,

If your eyes were as sharp as your tongue, you'd have long realized that we've found more than just "another tomb". This is where the dwarves who built this city emerged from the Deep Roads. Whatever drove them here, they were determined to stay. The lowest levels were deliberately collapsed.
Send Vertis back when he's done with the runes in the canyon. Do not make him lift anything heavier than a quill! That slave cost a pretty fortune.

Estoris

Canyon Overlook[edit | edit source]

A draft of cold air from the canyon brings with it the sharp stench of rot around the overlook. Puncture wounds dot the corpses of a gurn and its unlucky owner.

The Colossus of Orlais[edit | edit source]

Emperor Florian, in addition to being notoriously reclusive, was not fond of his own visage. Orlesian emperors and empresses are traditionally immortalized in gilded marble. Florian, forced to commission something, instead chose a red sandstone found only in the Hissing Wastes. He demanded his likeness be carved there - away from where he could see it.

When presented with an official proposal, the emperor idly drew on the paper, adding circles around the royal crest, the statue's eyes, and the dimensions and cost of the project. Florian's signature turned it into an official court document, and he refused to entertain more modest proposals hastily drafted and sent to his chambers, as he considered the matter "over and done with at last." Thus the Colossus of Orlais was born.

Dozens of sculptors, hundreds of miners, and three highly-paid surveyors selected a suitably stable hill in the Wastes to begin carving. A year into the project, workers uncovered an old dwarven ruin near the base of the statue. Believing this to be a sign that the ground was sturdy, the grand work continued—until Florian's death, when Empress Celene took the throne and ordered work on the costly effigy immediately cease. "We must give our subjects working on this noble project time to mourn," she said.

Strangely, Empress Celene never ordered work on the Colossus of Orlais to resume, nor offered a plan to transport it out of the Wastes.

—From Codex entry: The Colossus of Orlais

The Empty Square[edit | edit source]

An open tomb has eroded over the centuries. Carved into the stone, almost too faint to see, is a bas relief of an enormous, helmeted dwarf, flanked by two smaller dwarves, marching out of a mountain under a beaming sun.

The Four Pillars[edit | edit source]

Estoris,

Not only did we find the dwarven tomb precisely where I said we would, the writing on the stone uses a transitive verb found only in scripts that predate 700 TE. It means, obviously, that these ruins were built before the First Blight, just as I predicted when we started this expedition.

I believe you owe me some gold.

Avanthum

Lonely Light[edit | edit source]

Someone has lit a brazier full of oil here, possibly to act as a guiding light, should anyone need to find this rocky outcropping in the dark.

The Oasis[edit | edit source]

The oasis is significantly cooler than the open sands. A sweet fragrance drifts down from the trees.

Stone Over Sky[edit | edit source]

A faint inscription in ancient dwarven script is carved in the archway: Let this gate be the Stone over your head, home never forgotten, anchoring soil and sky.
