North of Dalavar in the foothills of the Mountains of Purity stands a sea coast fortress, the Palace of Dezinaumplaid. Dezinaumplaid is a wizard of extraordinary power and made his fortune by piracy and banditry. After making such a success of his life, he began other business interests, including guiding caravans safely through the mountains and destroying other pirates near Dalavar. He is also a well known fence for powerful magics. His vaults are rumored to be in another dimension, accessible only from somewhere within his palace. The palace itself is a monument to decadence and gluttony, but is protected by some of the most vile wizards ever trained, the apprentices of Dezinaumplaid of course.
