Crypts of Chados
Fort Assadar was established by the church of Chados to guard the entrance to the Valley of Kings, where the Crypts of Chados were established.
There is an order of knights based out of Fort Assadar called the Cryptguard Templars. They are taught secret techniques which merge swordplay and divine magic, and are extremely dangerous individuals.
In its heyday, Fort Assadar was a military power in its own right. Now it is chronically understaffed and unable to properly fulfill its function in the region.
Templars still patrol the rocky outskirts of the Crypts regularly, but not often and not in force. The raiders typically run rather than confront them, unless they have major advantage of numbers.
