Canyon of Guthay

Map of Near Tyr

“…a massive rift on the edge of the Great Alluvial Sand Wastes.” —p. 5, Dungeon 181

“…a dark and forlorn place riddled with shallow, monster-infested caverns which hold many dangers…” —ibid.

“The Canyon of Guthay combines the features of a true canyon and a massive rift. Some immense tectonic disturbance in the dim past caused the floor of the canyon to subside about a hundred feet below the level of the surrounding terrain, while the rocky walls were heaved upward by the same amount. The result is a canyon that is twice as deep as it appears from a distance when one can see only the massive upheaval of bedrock around it. A trail winds down through tumbled boulders to the canyon’s floor, which is a stretch of relatively smooth sand and gravel that varies from 30 to 90 feet wide along its half-mile length. The walls of the canyon are rough and fairly easy to climb, requiring a DC 10 Athletics check. Wagons can be brought down the trail into the canyon, but it’s a difficult, exhausting trek.” —ibid, p. 13
