The Palace of Loss was the abode of the goddess Shar, located on the Plane of Shadow,[1] before the Spellplague.


The Palace of Loss was a tower with neither windows nor doors. Only Shar's petitioners and servants knew the way to enter or exit the tower.[1][2]


Besides her servants and worshipers, within the tower were kept her prisoners who desired freedom above all else. Thus, Shar could enjoy their pain more fully.[1][2]


At one point in time, the Palace of Loss was located in Niflheim, the second layer of Hades,[2][3][4] before it was relocated in the Plane of Shadow.[1]

After the Spellplague, the Palace of Loss was destroyed, leaving behind a gaping dark hole, much like an inverted tower, called the Foundation of Loss. The hole formed a magical portal to her new home in the Towers of Night in the Astral Sea. The Foundation was surrounded by a sense of sorrow so strong it could be felt, and the area attracted many evil beings of darkness from the Shadowfell.[5]
