Forsaken Citadel

The Forsaken Citadel is a delve found northeast of Senchal. The site was formerly known as the Topal Legionary Academy and trained some of the Akaviri Potentate's greatest tacticians. In the face of the Knahaten Flu in Southern Elsweyr, the citadel's commander shut the gates and the garrison was never heard from again.

A copy of Demon from the East is sitting on a bench in the library. An unsent letter is on a writing desk in the same room. A copy of The Bounty and the Shields is on a table in the barracks. Hiijar's Tapestry Scrap is on the right-hand side wall, in the back of the room upstairs in the Grand Lecturer's Hall.
