On an islet in the lake, orcs and goblins tend a herd of rothe (deep rothe, detailed in Drow of the Underdark), watched over by drow patrols sent out from Tier Breche through the Mantle. As well as the patrols, drow with guardhorns and eyes of the eagle cusps keep watch from cavern-wall fissures overlooking Donigarten, to prevent food thefts by the orcs and goblins, as well as raids by others. There are 2-5 spies on duty at once, drawn from all three schools in Tier Breche (to teach them patience and vigilance).

The fat, affable Vhurn (an old, scarred drow warrior) also sells Underdark packs, containing torches, ropes, grapnels, spikes and a mallet, a tinder box, flasks of lamp oil in a metal carry-box, a hooded signal-eye lamp, a probing pole (10' pole with a reel on one end that releases a weight-tipped, marked plumb linefor measuring drops and chasms), food, and a spare dagger, rock-hammer and prying-bar.

Hungry drow harvested them for food, and sampled them for use in the making of medicines, potions, and spellcasting, until few were left.
