Fancy Bastard Scales of War
The vast basalt plate on which the City of Brass stands is threaded by an ageless and endless series of tunnels cut through a great mass of blood-red rock. The Keening Delve is a labyrinthine warren of ruined tunnels and caverns threaded by an endless shrieking wind — according to legend, the echoing scream of a primordial slain in the Dawn War. In the heart of the Elemental Chaos, Haemnathuun fought against Bahamut, Bane, and Ioun, and was slain. Countless centuries later, the wind that is his dying breath has scoured his former citadel into ruin.
The Keening Delve is a place of madness and mystery now inhabited by slaads, demons, elementals, and other foul creatures. Great treasures are said to be lost there, including artifacts and magic from the Dawn War. Some say that Haemnathuun’s living heart still beats at the center of this labyrinth, patiently awaiting the chance to be reborn.
