After the treaty of Jade Mountain, the Aztecs have reopened their old
sandstone quarry east of Tenochtitlan. The dry, sandy soil was once
abandoned to an ancient horror, but the desperate Aztecs called upon their
gods to aid them and reclaimed the quarry. The western portion of the
quarry is filled with sound of industry as Aztec masons diligently shape
stones for the Empire's fortifications. The eastern portion of the quarry
is walled off by stone and powerful spells to contain the terrors within,
and a dedicated priest of the god Shadowfax holds the dark powers at bay.

The curse of the quarry stems from the swamps on its southern edge, aptly
named the Swamps of Sorrow.  Living and undead creatures are rumored to
live in its murky depths, and panthers and frogmen have been seen hunting
the paths.  Here and there ruins of a once great civilization may be seen,
half-buried in the muck.  A great wyrm is said to live nearby, guarding an
ancient treasure for its dark masters.
