The monastery, as seen from the skies.

The Adamantine Monastery is a large monastery in the Wrothgarian Mountains of High Rock. It was named for the Adamantine, or Direnni, Tower; as parts of the monastery are built from rocks from the Tower it was given this name. It appears in Age of Industry.

History

The monastery was built some time during the early Fifth Era, as a reclusive stronghold for the Knights of Azura. It underwent many changes in population as the Knights were hunted down, but they would almost always re-occupy it.

Sometime in 6E 184 Princess Marya arrived at the monastery, and is now the High Priestess.

Geography

Although its name suggests its proximity to the Adamantine Tower, the monastery is actually in the Wrothgarian Mountains. Its actual location is unknown to many, and it is almost impossible to get to without using an airship.
