The Dawn of the Blackwatch
The Blackwater Mines
The entrance to the Blackwater Mines is located on the eastern side of “The Proper”. It is a huge rectangular hole that descends over 200’ down. The mine is where the obsidian bricks that make up the wall along “The Scratch”came from. The roughly shaped stones would be brought up on the lift and brought to the stoneworks to be finished. It has been unused for over 40 years since a cave-in caused the death of 26 miners including the previous foreman, Micha Greyhand. The windmill at the edge of the hole is still in excellent working condition as it is maintained by Micha’s son,Arioch Greyhand. The winched lift stopped functioning shortly after the cave-in and no one has seen the need or possessed the courage to climb the rusty metal ladder down to try to fix it. Some people whisper that the mine is haunted.
