The City of Cauldron
Gnome architects and artisans designed and built much of Cauldron. One of these architects, a gnome wizard named Jzadirune, also found time to carve out a secluded enclave beneath the city for himself and his kin. The enclave, which was named after its creator, became a sanctuary for gnome spellcasters and maesters. Jzadirune became known as a place to build or acquire wondrous magic items.
About 75 years ago the gnomes vanished and no one knows what became of the once great society. The party has discovered through their adventures through the dungeon that the great disappearance was know simply as “The Vanishing” and the gnomes literally began to vanish. They discovered a skulk who was afflicted and somehow Theodocius was afflicted as well. A scroll of remove curse from The church of St. Cuthbert seemed to take care of that. The cause of the curse still remains a mystery but the Halfling collector, Tygot, seems to think it has something to do with the items that are procured there.
