Tempus's Tears sits at the intersection of the Skuldask Road and The Thundar's Ride at the heart of the Fields of the Dead. There is a large standing stone setup at the intersection with an inscription:
Here was peace this day made.
Let Tempus cry bitter tears.
No more our dead we’ll parade
And live cloaked in waiting fear.
The dwarf and gnome villagers live in burrow homes as the area of the village is covered in stone ruins. The villages say the stones are under the protections of Amaeraszantha, an Amethyst Dragon.
Located in the ruins is the Stone that Speaks. Scholars of Candlekeep have long sought that relic.
