"Oh, what a mess!"

This article is in serious need of improvement. Your help would be graciously appreciated.

This article is about the three-mile-long vertical shaft that serves as a part of the tunnels connecting D'ni and the surface. For the series of tunnels of which the Great Shaft is a part, see Descent.

The Great Shaft (D'niregaro tiwa, regahro tiwah, literally meaning "The Great Shaft") referred to by the KI as D'ni-Tiwah, is a large three mile long vertical shaft that the D'ni built as part of the tunnels to the surface, which the D'ni were going to use to make contact with the surface dwellers. Designed by Geran and Garten, Guild Masters of the Guild of Surveyors, it required the four greatest D'ni digging machines and a few months to complete.

A small pathway circles around it leading from the top to the bottom, and once enough of the internal bracing was added, two elevators were installed to make the journey shorter. Small rest areas known as Eder Tomahntee were carved into the rock surrounding the shaft at different points in the journey.

It, along with parts of the rest of Descent, is being restored by the Intangibles members Chloe Rhodes and Whilyam.
