The dwarven Citadel of Sentinel.

  • Until 13855 Controlled by the Dwarven Emperium as an outpost in the depths to warn of incursions by the followers of the Lurker in the Deep.
  • From 13856 – 14707 the Sentinel is an semi-open city run in a nominal fashion by the Council of 12, however the city is secretly under the control of a consortium of Drow and Illithid who use psychic manipulation to keep the city under control.

Sentinel was founded during the second age by the Dwarven Emperium. Located in a roughly circular natural cavern roughly 3 miles on a side.

The northern wall of the cavern allows the Prater River to flow into the cavern. After decades of mining and shaping the dwarves created a crater lake bowl with an island in the center allowing the Prater to pool into a large lake that empties via a 300’ waterfall in the southern wall. Carved into the south wall are a series of lock/levies and great ramps to facilitate commercial travel.

The east wall was opened up and carved into a terraced city that houses roughly 40,000 souls comfortably calling the Sentinel home and another 10,000 temporary/transient souls. Out the north east wall the great road connects into the major through roads of the underdark making Sentinel a natural choke point of both the road and river networks.
