The Minotaurs Gate
The Minotaurs’ Gate consists of two thick, heavy wooden doors bound in iron. They stand 30 feet tall and roughly 15 feet wide each. The doors have barred metal windows in them which can slide open and closed by means of an iron plate. An iron slot which can be barred provides access for tolls to be paid.
The gate is controlled by 3 Minotaurs, all brothers. They act in a partnership with a Manticore to charge tolls to travelers using the gate. In return for one quarter of their goods they allow passage through the gate and provide safe passage to civilized lands. The minotaurs have a small stone fortress nearby to the gate where they live while the manticore, Manny, has a nest somewhere in the cliffs nearby.
