The Castle of Illusion was once the home of the gnome illusionist Fhzmilliyun Sparkledrim, whose illusions lingered for years, even driving away an orc horde that settled in the ruined citadel.[1]


The castle was located near the eastern side of the Fell Pass.[1]


As of the 1360s DR, the castle was inhabited by the evil wizard MacBec Maclyon and his insane followers.[1]

Malcyon used to summon powerful demons and come to terms with the dark powers to get a wider magical knowledge. Some devils were protecting his castle and hopping up and down on the surrounding land, while others teached him in black magic. The evil wizard was not aware it was on its way to build a second Hellgate Keep.[2]
