Mobhad Leigh

From the Shoanti term meaning "steps into hell," this perfectly circular pit is located at the base of the Kodar Mountains, on the Storval Plateau of northern Varisia, approximately 25 miles northeast of the source of the Aloren River. A set of spiral stairs run around the edge of the hole, but ends after only a few hundred feet. Beyond this point it is necessary to climb the sheer walls or fly. Few people know how deep the Mobhad Leigh actually is, although some rumor that it is so deep that it bypasses the Darklands region of Nar-Voth completely and opens directly into Sekamina.[1][2]

Shoanti and the Mobhad Leigh

The Shoanti of the Storval Plateau avoid the Mobhad Leigh after a number of their shamans died mysteriously while exploring it using divination magics. Those who do venture close enough have reported seeing dancing orange lights flickering in the pit's depths.[3][4]

Entrance to Sekamina

The rumors about this place are, in fact, correct: the Mobhad Leigh descends about 6,300 feet to the Darklands realm of Sekamina. The ancient serpentfolk city of Sverenagati is located nearby, making the Mobhad Leigh the quickest route to reach this dreaded place from the surface.[1]
