The Glass Works


Since there is only one Glass Works in the city, there is really no need for a name. This seems unimportant to the adventurers, yet it has an impact upon the city.

Since there is only one Glass Works in the city, there is really no need for a name.  Here the Guild Master, the few masters, dozen journeymen, and thirty or so apprentices, produce glass sheets and mirrors of all sizes. The heat inside is oppressive, as most of the young apprentices and a few street folk are stoking the fires, manning the bellows, and carting fuel and glass pieces. Besides windows and mirrors (which actually take a good deal of skill to make), the various journeymen make odd money by blowing and spinning glass goblets and vases.

The Guild Master, a thin older man, has taken to designing “Glass Murals” for various religions temples, which act as a window and great works of art. It is his “devotion” to the God of Glass that compells him to beautify all temples to the divine.

Isn't this just a glass works?

I think it is an explanation for why the city would have pretty windows in all the churches. By installing this in a city, you would add descriptions of the glass work in all the temples and important places.

A little way up the narrow valley, before they reach the woods, the PCs notice the squat, tumbledown buildings by the riverside. They are hardly big enough for a human to stand in, and the complex cogs and shafts that occupy the central cavity of one of the buildings are perplexing. What were these buildings? And how safe are they to explore?

Alternatively a desolate place is the perfect setting for a derelict chapel or croft. There needn't be any actual physical encounter involved, but it adds atmosphere to a place to see its dead history. For instance, in the Outer Hebrides there are whole deserted villages which were razed to the ground by the English during the Clearances. Such stories give a setting authenticity and character.
