Mini-map of The Gauntlet

The Gauntlet[]

The Gauntlet is a supreme test and first requirement to become a Fire Knight and an apprentice to Horrendous. One must first obtain a petition signed by an official of Dün Mir and then go to Warrior Academy. Participants have to face spike walls, blazing flames, fireballs, complex mechanisms and various monsters. Once you enter, there is no way to escape. You have to pass, or die.


Fortress of Horrendous[]

Surrounded by massive lava lake, this part of the city serves as a stronghold for Dün Mir warriors and the upper part also contains the throne room. Beneath the fortress is located a storage room and a jail where some urchins, a troll, and an ogress are kept.

Warrior Academy[]

Guarded by the Quartermaster, this building leads to an underground labyrinth used for The Gauntlet. Horrendous himself greets new adepts for the test.

The Orchard[]

Dün Mir is also known for it's apples, grown by Gearhart's family, which are exported to the other cities. At some time, the orchard was endangered by an urchin, living in a nearby cave. However, Jack the Warrior got rid of the urchin.
