Karnor's Castle

Karnor's Castle was once an important stronghold of the Iksar Empire and was built in order to eliminate the threat of the giants of both the woods and mountains. It was built by Venril Sathir, who was the first of the Iksar emperors after they had secured their freedom from the shissar over two thousand years prior to the Age of Turmoil. He was able to unite the five tribes of Iksar and conquer most of the continent of Kunark. Venril Sathir was obsessed with immortality, so he made a pact with the Prince of Hate, Innoruuk, in order to rule the Empire forever as a lich. Venril's son, Rile, interrupted the ritual and claimed the throne for himself. Venril's soul was trapped within an amulet and his body cremated by Rile. Many centuries later Venril Sathir escaped death and set forth on a plan to dominate Kunark as he did before.

Karnor's Castle

During the Age of Turmoil, when Norrath's adventurers discovered the ruins of Kunark, Karnor's Castle is known as one of the most dangerous and the most popular locations on the entire continent. Experienced adventurers often come here to test their skills before venturing on to the hidden challenges the continent offered to those of great ability. Karnor's Castle, while technically indoors, has no roof, which allows for druids and rangers to use the full gambit of their spells. The first part of the castle is guarded fiercely by drolvargs loyal to Venril Sathir. Much of the upper levels have been neglected for centuries, while the depths of the castle have been renovated by Sathir's servants. The interior moat of the castle, made possible by Sathir's immense power of the arcane arts, has an underwater entrance to the underground halls, jail, and hidden rooms of the citadel. In the rear of the castle, beyond the legions of undead, is where Venril Sathir himself resides. Here he has built a library of stunning proportions and a laboratory where he resurrects and creates some of Kunark's most fearsome abominations. The other races of Kunark have taken note of Venril's return, but it may be too late.
