A formal garden and hedge maze located on a fallow hill in the east of Caurenze, near the town of Elysien. The hedges and topiaries remain neat and trim despite the absence of any staff, and the place is said to be tended by unholy things, though whether these tenders be ghosts, ghouls, goblins or some other creature depends on which of the locals you happen to ask. Few have the courage to enter the maze, and fewer still return.
The garden is named for the Countess Nefaronde, a sorceress of some repute who lived in Caurenze over a century ago. It is said that she built the maze as a prison for her wayward husband, and that he resides there still, entrapped by magic inside an emerald the size of a hen's egg.
