Maze of Shadowy Terror
In the lowest level of Amberwall Tower is a maze intended to humble young apprentices confident of their ability to meet any threat with magic. The Maze of Shadowy Terror spontaneously generates monsters with a shadow conjuration effect. The denizens of the Maze of Shadowy Terror thus are only quasi-real and weaker than their real counterparts.
The Amberwall instructors intended that the maze, which looks like a typical set of twisting dungeon corridors, serve as a final test for wizards and sorcerers before they head out into the world or become members of the Arcane Congress. Brave and foolhardy students eager to prove themselves are always sneaking into the basement and entering the maze on their own.
A part of their final examinations students must make their way through the maze. They are graded not only on how they deal with the monsters summoned by the maze, but in how they employ their talents to solve puzzles within the maze. It is rumored that students with particularly large egos face trials that can be both harder and more degrading than average in an attempt to deflate their egos.
