Fallen Gate is the remnant of the foreign quarter of the [[:Category:Dark Elf|Dark Elf]] city of [[Neriak, City of Hate]].

The first theory states that Dark Elf Queen Cristanos Thex ordered necromancer Tseralith to unleash a terrible magical attack upon the invaders. The magnitude of the attack was tragically miscalculated and the Teir'Dal with their Ogre and Troll allies fell victim to the force of the magic. The outer gate of the city, including the foreign quarter, was reduced to ruins and sealed forever to all outsiders.
The Fallen Gate is a massive labyrinth of twisting corridors and secret quest locations; notable of these are the armor quests. A key is no longer required for access to this adventure zone. Enter at your own risk, preferably with a group.
 
   
Fallen Gate is located due west of the Crossroads in the Commonlands. (mapref = -1,484,-38,-400) There is only one entrance deep in the heart of the Yapping Maze.

Fallen Gate is the crumbled outer section of the Dark Elf city of Neriak. The Dark Elves, or Teir'Dal, were created to be the minions of Innoruuk, the Prince of Hate. They went on to build the darkly majestic underground city of Neriak in the upper reaches of the Underfoot.

[The Gong of Uglan], a great magical artifact, was given to an ogre warlord during the The Age of Cataclysms. It is said that dark elf blacksmiths crafted this artifact out of a magical alloy and rewarded it to the ogre warlord Uglan for a deed...a mysterious deed.
 

LoreEdit

Fallen Gate is the remnant of the foreign quarter of the Dark Elf city of Neriak, City of Hate. There are two leading theories describing the event that brought about the ruin of the area. What is unanimously agreed upon is that a united army of Leatherfoot Halflings and Kithicor Rangers invaded Neriak some three hundred years ago.

The first theory states that Dark Elf Queen Cristanos Thex ordered necromancer Tseralith to unleash a terrible magical attack upon the invaders. The magnitude of the attack was tragically miscalculated and the Teir'Dal with their Ogre and Troll allies fell victim to the force of the magic. The outer gate of the city, including the foreign quarter, was reduced to ruins and sealed forever to all outsiders.

The second theory holds that a powerful arcane device was smuggled into Neriak during the siege by the halflings. When it detonated it unleashed a quake so massive that the caverns surrounding The First Gate and foreign quarter collapsed and sealed the place off from the living.

FallenGateSymbol1

One for the ogres.

FallenGateSymbol2

One for the trolls.

However, regardless of the method in which The First Gate and the foreign quarter were destroyed, the ruins currently known as Fallen Gate are inhabited by undead zombies, ghosts and skeletons. These undead are all that is left from the citizens of the foreign quarter and the dark elf, halfling, ogre and troll combatants of the final battle. When Fallen Gate was revamped in LU18 it was invaded by The Thexians, a group of fanatical dark elf purists obsessed with the reclamation of Neriak. They sought an entrance back into Neriak, only they didn't count on the high number and strength of undead stalking the ruin. There must be some malevolent force giving these undead denizens strength.

FallenGateSymbol3

One for the dark elves

According to Drund Mordgraahl Skullsprain, a scholar of ancient ogre religion, "ancient records state that ogres and trolls of the First Gate worshiped a lost deity. This was not long before the city's disappearance. When the great First Gate perished, so too did the secrets of this lost religion and their deity."
