The Avacynian church has established a small fort here known as the Elgaud Grounds. Many Nephalians are wary of the priesthood and watch them like hawks. As long as the church brings trade to and from Thraben, they are given a pass from the key players in Nephalia. During Avacyn's madness, the Elgaud Grounds were reappropriated by the Lunarch Inquisition as an execution site.
