The Glass Works

By:

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.

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.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
