- This wiki is very much under construction. The original wiki was set to be shut down and the wiki was largely mirrored to a Fandom-based version, though most of the reference images had not yet been copied over. This migration was put on hold when it appeared the original wiki could in fact be retained, however the old wiki was lost in its entirety when the server was among the many taken down by a massive series of cyberattacks on data centers during early February, 2023. It is now being rebuilt with the launch of Hel. Sorry if it's a little messy right now!

The Well of Light is enormous earthen shaft leading to the surface, carved into the rock near the First Landing gate as part of the failed Skyhole Project.


Main article: Skyhole Project

Not a naturally-occurring rock formation, the Well of Light was intentionally crafted towards the end of the tenth century of the Moonless Age. While intended to allow the construction of an ambitious engineering project providing swift access to the surface, the designers failed to account for surface weather, resulting in a massive mudslide demolishing the site of construction. As a result, the Well of Light is largely an open hole in the ground, with the base a damp and mudding collection of half-buried buildings and debris.


The Well of Light is currently part of the territorial claims of the Val'Sarghress, though it currently has nominal value and is poorly suited to habitation.[1]
