Unbeknownst to the citizens of Rome, the entire city is build above a bottomless abyss which also serves as the lair of The Insane Earthshaper, a gargantuan squidlike demigod lurking in the depths below. It’s main task is to guard the secret tower of the elven druid and dragon rider, Pharadil, who also founded the city not long after the Dragon Wars several thousand years ago.

The tower of Pharadil houses one of the twelve Palantirs, and it is strategically placed so that once removed from its pedestal, it will cause the entirety of Rome and its immediate surroundings to crumble and fall into the abyss below. In effect, it functions as a self-destruct mechanism, and an adventuring party which managed to make their way down into the tower during the Elven Invasion a couple of years ago almost decided to remove the Palantir and kill both the 1 million citizens of Rome along with the elven army of 1.6 million. Luckily, they decided upon another approach, and managed to put a stop to the war another way.

On their way to the tower of Pharadil, they had an encounter with The Insane Earthshaper. Luckily, they were able to chase it away long enough for them to enter the tower, even though it almost caught them by surprise as it came floating towards them in the darkness. After the battle, they decided to give the demigod their own nickname; Octopus Prime.
