"The trail leads here...to the castle of Kanemith. What evils wait for us within this fabled fortress, I do not know."

- Cairo(src)


Kanemith was a castle located in the Northern Steppes, in/near the region of Daken-Shar. The fortress was apparently quite (in)famous.

A king was buried in a tomb under the castle, his hand still holding the Hand of Naz. A curse was put in place in case of intruders. Such an eventuality come to pass when, in 1265, the castle was entered by Renit and Cairo. They retrieved the gauntlet, but the curse was triggered, unleashing undead upon them as the ground began to shake. However, both of them survived.[1]
