In SLASH'EM, Grund's Stronghold is a branch accessed by a stairway down from level 12 or 13 of the Dungeons of Doom. Monster generation in the Stronghold is biased toward chaotic monsters. Magic mapping will not work on the level ("Your head spins as something blocks the spell!", causing confusion.)
