Minos-Pashat

From PathfinderWiki

Minos-Pashat is one of the vaults of Orv, the deepest layer of the Darklands. It is a remote vault south of the Black Desert.[1]

The ceilings are unusually low in this vault, never rising more than 40 feet from the ground. It often resembles a maze, with pillars, stalactites, stalagmites, fissures, and rock walls making passage difficult. In other parts there are wide-open spaces, the comparatively close ceiling having no obvious means of support.

At the centre of the vault is a huge pillar of stone 1,000 feet in diameter. There is a massive adamantine-banded door in the western side of the pillar, large enough for two elephants to enter side-by-side. The urdefhan believe that their race was born behind this door, created in a grand daemonic experiment. As a result, Minos-Pashat is one of their most sacred places.[2]

Denizens

The urdefhan do not live in their sacred vault. Instead, priests and elders come here on pilgrimages and pray before the sacred door. Some are said to receive visions; others mysteriously disappear, leaving behind their belongings in a pile to the side of the door.

Half-fiends and their daemon masters lair in some of the more easily fortified sections of the vault. There are also oozes, giant vermin, and cave raptors.[2]
