The Belt of Rahl
The magicians keep was the last front against the undead forces in the last war. Before that though, after the tribes had started to grow more wary of one another and were thinking about dismantling the belt, they served as the diplomatic mediants between the lands. Judges who could look at the situation from both sides and judge fairly. They were the true power in the land, but fairly served the people. When all the tribes fell after they took the belt apart, the high council laid magical sand on the sand bridge to valhin. The head of the council ignited it and himself with it to break away the only connection they had with the now evil infested world. For adventures in the keep, see adventures, session two.
