Among the most corrupt of the lands of Despair, is Kontaur,
which lies south of the Old Marsh. Once a lush forest filled
with wild vegetation and beautiful sylvan and elven races, it
is now the heart of evil in the southern lands. The cause of
the land's devastation is not completely known. Sages believe
that either Laschte or Vl'arescht opened a gate to a race of
astral travelers known as the Carnifex, which brought legions
of balrogs to Despair long ago. The balrogs waged war against
all sentient races, seeking to destroy at the leisure of their
masters. The avatars of Darkhaven were truly oppressed and
fought for their very lives against this evil army. After
years of war, the Carnifex were finally driven across the Pits
of Banishment and into a legendary castle from which they
could not escape. Without their masters' guidance, the balrogs
lost their edge and began losing the war. They retreated to
Kontaur, the first realm they had conquered, and erected a
castle. Although there have been many attempts to destroy the
Balrog race, none have succeeded. Many new races have come to
the forests of Kontaur recently, and made the Realms even more
perilous. Foul pixie that were corrupted by Laschte, savage
beastmen and, Vl'arescht's creation, the goblins all guard the
paths to and from the Kontaur castle. Yet there lies a shining
hope in this foul land, for A'enaar lifted her hand and
protected a tribe of forest elves known as the Misinkii.

Area Notes

Kontaur can be a pretty dangerous place, but it's full of pretty cool eq and some nice Realms history. Aggro guards wander the castle and the balrog camp (and there's similar mobs called beastmen in the forest). The trickiest part is Carnifex castle, which is entirely no recall. Kontaur is also home to Wicorith, the simplest way to get to The Underworld. Aside from the stuff in Carnifex, the only run mob of real note is Sage of the Mountain. Chlith has some decent stuff that is easy to get too.
