A testament to change (a failure of fate)
Old Quartz Mine
Located on Valor pass the Old Quartz Mine is a twisting maze of crystal speced rock. It is hypotisized that it originaly followed a vein of gold, as it is common for quartz and gold to be in the same location. Occasonally some quartz is taken (mostly for magical research) from the old mine shaft but rumors of monsters in the deep keep most prospectors and fortune hunters from going more then a couple hundred feet into the mine. A large warning has been placed on wooden sign outside the mine warning of danger within, but some still enter, less return. It seems that everyone in the Valarian Valley knows someone who knows someone who came back with tales of traps and treasure, ancient cities and underground lakes, but there seems to be little truth to them.
