Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale, is a highly guarded chamber where the dragons of the Serpent's Spine mountains keep a crystalline scale. This is not just any old dragon scale though, this one is from Veeshan herself. It was once kept in The Nest, but after Solusek Ro altered the terrain of the region, it shifted the reliquary to high atop what is now known as the Direwind Cliffs. Many of the guardians of the scale perished in the quake, but Lethar the Black survived. Through treachery and deceit he has decided to claim the scale for himself. He has a Drakkin "son" named Dyn`leth who has developed his own desire for power. The keep is divided into three main wings. The north wing is where Lethar, Dyn`leth, and their army reside.
