Initially the well-hidden gate on the western side of the tower is covered by sand, only after taking on Old Friends can the extensive complex be entered.
The maze of passages under the tower is the refuge of Ildari Sarothril and is infested with Ash Spawn (×13) summoned by her to protect the place. And along the way her journals — Ildari's Journal, vol. I (speculates about sparing Niyya), Ildari's Journal, vol. II and Ildari's Journal, vol. III (admits to killing Neloth's steward, and withering his home) — give insight into her thinking and why she wants revenge put upon Neloth.
