What's the deal with Chathold?!

Hi all. In the Ivid the Undying sourcebook, Chathold is a place of strange magic and horrid evil (fiends, undead, orcs, etc. prowling around).

I'm wondering what has happened with the city since the Flight of Fiends. What is the status of Chathold in 591 CY? Is it just a ruin now? Is it a Fading Land? What's the deal?

As it would happen, Chathold was recently detailed in places of mystery: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=lg/articles/mp20040217a

In a nutshell. It's still a mess.....

Thanks for that pointer Simpi, I don't think that I've seen that article previously! :D

Thanks for the link Simpi! Like Grodog, I hadn't seen this article. Before the Flight of Fiends, Chathold was pretty much impossible to use in an adventure the way it was described in the Ivid sourcebook. Now it is usable and appropriately challenging.

The hooks in the article would be pretty fun to pursue, but I imagine some folks could come up for more uses for Chathold than just having it vanish beneath the sea. I know I certainly could. ;)

Thanks - the articles don't seem to stay up very long on the frontpage, or get lost in the more metagamey type of RPGA article on the LG website.

We also did Fading Lands and Rauxes recently...
