The Darkling River works its way through the underdark beneath the grey hills to depths unknown. This is the sixteenth mapped location (and 19th map total) along the Darkling River and the Darkling Lake beyond.

Here the Darkling is fairly fast, winding, and narrow – which gives little chance to set to the shore at the Stairs. This set of twists is connected to two caves with 10-foot-wide circular sets of stone stairs winding up into the solid rock above. The area was recently home to a small religious cult of dark elves worshipping the half-divine daughter of their traditional goddess. But in recent months the elves were wiped out – the last sign of them being a few fresh skeletons stripped of all flesh along the banks.
