The Seven Pillared Hall
The heart of Thunderspire’s upper level is the Seven Pillared Hall. Dozens of laterns hang from the walls and the thick pillars of this great chamber. The chamber walls have been fashioned into building facades, so the Hall appears more like a city square then an underground cavern. Merchants conduct business in the Hall, at the behest and with the permission of the Mages of Saruun.
The Seven Pillared Hall, a mighty chamber, was once the market square and meeting place of the ancient undermountain city of Saruun Khel. In some ways, it still servers as a market and meeting place of sorts, but for a different kind of inhabitant. Today, the Mages of Saruun provide order and saftey within the Hall, chiefly so that they can trade with the intelligent monster races that live within the labyrinth and the Underdark beyond.
