facet Ilshenar, the City of Montor is a ruined version of its former self. Located on Termir Flam, which means Lake of Fire, various demonic creatures creatures spawn here. A lava pit in the Northeast section of the city is labeled on UO Automap as a "Gate to the Abyss". A Demon Slayer weapon/spellbook and a Flame Slayer Talisman would be of assistance here.
Generally speaking, fire-based creatures spawn here:
There is not much official fiction on Montor:
- The people gathered in the northeast area of the world (Ilshenar) and established a city on a mountainside calling it Montor. Long ago in Sosaria another town of the same name had existed in, ironically, the lands ruled by Lord British himself. At first I thought the name was just a reuse of a familiar town but you can translate the name to mean “Mountain Passion”. The later seems to ring true. In other texts it is listed as Mont-Or. The later name would befit a new city with people who survived such a catastrophe. This new city took about 40 years to complete. It was, by all accounts, a paradise of city and mountain with waterfalls that cut between buildings and the mountainside. In the years that followed Ilshen and a council of scholars set up laws and government and peace reigned.
- Then twenty years after its completion Montor was destroyed. We still are missing pieces of all that transpired but it seems the mountain Montor was built on had a volcanic eruption. The city’s present state would back that up fully. It would also appear that the people knew it was going to happen and evacuated.
