With the 85th Map of the Week we continue in the borderlands town of Óðinn's House in the Kingdom of Slovania. This week we take a look at the flooded area of the subterranean Dwarven Highwy extension.
Key to the flooded area (Highway Location No. 5)
This is another area with a riddle that the Northern Circle has yet to unravel. It appears that an underground stream cut a fissure into the north wall of the highway, permitting the stream's water to flow down the sides of the cut and across the highway, where it cut another descending fissure into the south wall, allow the water to drain into the unknown depths. So it appears, but a close examination has convinced the circle's members that someone of something than the underground stream intentionally cut the fissures into the two walls. The druids of the fortress have no idea who or what that might have been, much less why. Only the game master knows the answer to these questions; there is and will be no official answer.
1. Highway extension. The tunnel is roughly 20 feet/6 m wide and 10 feet/3 m high.
2. Inflow fissure.
3. Flood water. The muddy silt water flows from north (top) to south (bottom) across the road.
4. Outflow fissure.
