Welcome to Sandpoint
The Obelisk Forest of Mundatei is no true forest. Rather, when travelers pass over the ridge into Mundatei’s wide valley, their first impression is of a vast tangle of menhirs—thousands upon thousands of 10-foot-high stones carved in places with spiraling patterns of runes. It’s a breathtaking display, and rumor has long held that some of the obelisks are hollow and contain treasures.
But when a group of Korvosan explorers broke open a dozen
of the obelisks nearly a hundred years ago, they found that each obelisk contained a twisted, long-dead human body, its limbs and expression frozen in pain and horror. That evening, the explorers’ camps were assaulted by horrific undead whose flesh was hard as stone and whose eyes were horribly alive and fresh. A dozen folk were carried off by the undead, and when the survivors searched for them the next day, no trace was found— but the 12 opened obelisks had reformed into their previous shapes as if they had never been touched. Few have returned to Mundatei since that fateful day.
