The Mausoleum is a huge warren of catacombs beneath Daunton. It has powerful wards, maintained by the Temple of Lauto, that prevent the dead buried there from being raised as undead. First appeared in Broken Wards, where a rogue priest of Lauto named Slardazial Barthilfast was attempting a perverse ritual to break the wards and raise hordes of undead.

Every 45 or 50 feet a pale crystal is affixed to the wall, shimmering with a dim arcane radiance. Glyphs crawl up and down the walls, and the walls are regularly broken by passages or heavy doors of iron all adorned in similar fashion with large, heavy locks.

They veritably pulse with positive energy. Their significance is both religious and practical, weakening planar barriers here to make it easier for spirits to cross while simultaneously preventing any of the bodies from rising into undeath. |} On the chamber where Slardazial attempted his ritual:

From the doorway it stretches back nearly 200 feet, and is nearly as wide from side to side. From the doorway pairs of cracked pillars line a promenade across the floor toward a massive marble staircase which rises 10 feet to an altar. The altar itself is a strange white marble veined with a jet black stone you do not recognize and bears the typical accoutrements of Lauto's church. |} Quote:{| border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="100%" | class="alt2" style="font: normal normal normal 10pt/normal verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-color: rgb(34, 34, 34); border-top-width: 1px; border-right-width: 1px; border-bottom-width: 1px; border-left-width: 1px; border-top-style: inset; border-right-style: inset; border-bottom-style: inset; border-left-style: inset; border-color: initial; background-position: initial initial; background-repeat: initial initial; "|The religious significance of this room on the other hand is immense. Both a chapel and mass burial site, this room holds the bodies of no less then 3 high priests, as well as a hundred or more acolytes. Much of the stonework and wards have been damaged or tainted, and will need to be repaired, especially the column. |} "the column" refers to a cracked column that Magnus Madiron caused to fall over onto one of the undead raised by Slardazial.
