The town of shadowdale is dominated by three main structures. First is the Twisted tower of Ashaba, built by Drow centuries ago as a fortress from which they controled the area. It does look dangerously off balance, but the ledges were designed to land flying mounts, even if there are none here today. The second structure is The Hall of Morningdawn, a massive phonix shaped temple to Lothander that looks glaringly out of place for such a small town. the last dominating structure is in fact a natural feature, the massive limestone outcrop that is Old Skull. Near the base of the rounded stone is a pair of interesting buildings, one an inn, the other a old windmill with a path to the door and neumerous outbuildings. The path to the windmill is littered with signs, and the Inn is simply titled the Old skull inn. Further in town, there is another inn, but this one looks to be geared to the person expecting to stay a while.
"I saw it, there, in the sewers...for just a second. All hunched over, skin pale white beneath those rags...so many rags. The vermin crawled about his feet like idolaters at worship, and I swear that the wind drew breath in a frightened gasp at his passing. He wore cold like a cloak and I swear that behind that smiling golden mask he was laughing at me as his curved blade rose and fell, cutting through my men. It left wounds filled with crystals of salt...the screams...the screams...and the pants....Gods! The Pants!!!"
