A great magical school devoted to necromancy once stood here; now, there are only ruins. The students and teachers all fled the destruction or were killed. A conversation with a ghost of one of the teachers suggests that the school was destroyed by a powerful necromancer, jealous of other practitioners of the Art. Erevis, concerned about the state of the corpses, interred all of the remains of the slain students and teachers in a graveyard in Willowdale. It was this act that led to the creation of Chorus, an amalgamation of spirits that believes itself to be a necromancy teacher.
The ruins were briefly occupied by a lich known as The Third, who claimed to be a servant of the necromancer responsible for the visions experienced by the inhabitants of Willowdale. It has not been determined whether this necromancer is the same person that destroyed the school.
