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.

Quool's Tide

       By: Murometz

Once every decade on the eve of St. Poskov's Day during mid-winter, the coastal city of Tiyabon experiences a horrific event. Quool's Tide rolls in, depositing hundreds of bloated, fish-eaten corpses upon the pebbly shores of Tiyabon's wide bay. This singularity is to this day unexplained, though countless theories abound. It is said for example, that these corpses are not eaten by the myriad fish of the seas completely, due to the fear all creatures of the seas hold for Quool.

Named for Quool, a terrible, antediluvian god of seas and storms, who no longer exists for he has no worshipers, the Tide chokes the beaches and surf with the countless rotting bodies of those who had perished at sea in a violent way.

Almost immediately, the lifeless corpses are fed upon by crabs, gulls, and worse things that await the horrid feast. The townsfolk let nature take it course with disinterested disgust, though lately some enterprising adventurers have taken to searching along the beaches of flesh for former deceased companions, with intentions of raising them again!

Surprisingly no undead ever rise from among the many corpses. This is also a mystery.
