Agatheron's Points of Light
Located along the Trade Road between Hammerfast and Fallcrest, Thunderspire is a subterranean community located under Thunderspire Peak. Sometimes referred to as the Thunderspire Labyrinth, this small community is a trading community built on the ruins of the seat of the ancient Minotaur city of Saruun Khel. The minotaur kingdom fell almost one hundred years before Fallcrest was established, when a struggle for succession led to a vicious civil war.
Thunderspire itself is borderline “civilized” as many of the Labyrinth’s passages remain either unexplored or are expressly hostile. Even in the trading community of the Seven Pillared Hall, Drow, Duegar, Hobgoblins and others are often seen trading with more commonly seen peoples. What makes this community work is the tight control that the mysterious ruling Saruun Mages have established.
