The Cenotaph is an ancient, monumentally large pillar of black rock which rises from a cliff on the southern tip of the mountains that mark the Hold of Belkzen's western border. The main feature of this enormous rock is the huge pair of fifty-foot-high doors that bar entrance to whatever lies within. The Cenotaph is usually associated with the Whispering Tyrant for it was he who marched legions of his army through the yawning gates of this citadel. No one knows why he did this, and with the Whispering Tyrant's defeat the doors to the Cenotaph swung shut and have not been opened since. Despite this association, the Cenotaph was actually built before the rise of the Whispering Tyrant, a fact which has lead to much scholarly debate over its true origins.
