D&D 3.0: Tales from Mystara
“ The castle has been in ruins for near a century, since the great Gygar died, and many creatures have been seen lurking there. Bargle is only the latest in a long line of attempted residents. He may be working with the kobolds, or perhaps they ignore each other, I have no way of knowing. Most of my people avoid the place, save for the farmers who have land near it. I seem to recall a group of adventurers who came through here looking for fame and glory a year or so back, when Bargle had first moved in but before he killed the cleric. Never saw them again, but they might have attempted the castle and then moved on for all I know. ”
Some ruins, North of Threshold, on the west shore of the lake, are the quiet ruins of an ancient town; stone walls still stand in places, and pieces of rubble dot the landscape. There are even hard-to-find opening to buried catacombs which are still open. The whole place is rather spooky and no one with any sense goes there.
