Grasp of Orcus
Mount Ascension is the name of both a mountain and the city which sits upon it. It is located just south of the Great Eastern Desert.
The city is, among other things, famous for housing a prominent Temple of Ioun, as well as natural hot baths. The party visited there after crashing Honest Bob’s stolen Desertkin airship nearby. They arrived shortly after the Torc of the Necromancer had been taken from the catacombs beneath the city, and assisted Bree’s mother Felibre in recovering it. During this period, Bree and Born were both confined to the temple and not able to aid the rest of the party, though Born was briefly impersonated by Yogslip, so that they were unaware of the minotaur’s absence from their company.
