Earthnavel

From PathfinderWiki

In the eastern Tusk Mountains of the Realm of the Mammoth Lords lies a deep pit that resembles an inverted 13-layer ziggurat. The layers are littered with the bones of massive animals; and the lower the layer, the larger the bones, until they dwarf those of the largest creatures known to walk the surface of Golarion today.[1]

At the bottom of this pit is an opening just large enough to admit an average-sized humanoid, known as the Earthnavel, or sipapu to the local Kellid tribes. Below it stretch miles of freezing-cold tunnels which lead down into Nar-Voth, the upper layer of the Darklands. These passages show signs of collapse, suggesting that there may have once been larger tunnels here that extended beneath Nar-Voth into the deeper Darklands. It is possible many large beasts of the Tolguth in the Realm of the Mammoth Lords migrated there from Deep Tolguth in Orv via now-collapsed tunnels.[1]

Inhabitants

The Earthnavel is guarded not only by large, terrible beasts, but also by the ghosts of fur-clad warriors from a bygone age. They attack those who do not have the proper totems and perform the proper rituals.[1] Some also claim that the tunnels are inhabited by a race of intelligent, advanced troglodytes.[2]
