The Sewers of Stoneholt

By:

The city of Stoneholt is generally considered one of the Wonders of the World, but it conceals a second wonder - a labyrinth of massive sewers and storm drains greater then anything man has built.

The city of Stoneholt is generally considered one of the Wonders of the World, but it conceals a second wonder - a labyrinth of massive sewers and storm drains greater then anything man has built.

The system was well planned when it was built - it’s regular layout matching that of the streets overhead. It was built large enough to handle immense quantities of water, even diverting floodwaters from the occasional time that the Saar river overflows its banks.

The sewer system eventually delivers its waters to the sea, out of dozens of ports along the sea-sides.  Originally, massive bronze grills prevented access via these points, but many of these have been salvaged for their metal.  As a result, many denizens of the sea and other creatures have made their way into the sewer system.

Generally, exploring the sewers is not something taken upon lightly by people - these are still the domain of other creatures, not the least of which are the terribly fierce bands of feral caretakers. The Caretakers, or Shagru, are docile enough once broken, but the ones found underground are vicious and tenacious in the extreme, and much larger then normal. They are not alone down here. Massive 400lb rats, referred to as Sewer Bears, huge amphibious scorpions, and other massive vermin dwell in the dark. Rumors abound of even worse things, but those tales have not been substantiated.

The Forest of Flesh

       By: Kid Cannibal

The party has found the source of the strange creatures roaming the countryside. The rift in this reality glows with a silver hue, rippling with the wind but never moving. They step through and are immediately assaulted with the scent of rotting meat, some have to muster all their strength not to vomit. Strange cries similar to the beasts the party had faced before can be heard in the distance. Looking around, they see they are in a forest of grey and red rather than the normal brown and green. The trees are sticky to the touch and writhe, perhaps to get away or perhaps as a warning.

The deeper the party goes, the more the forest seems to slither and move underfoot. The cries get closer and more numerous. Creatures lurk in the shadows, all the same color of their surroundings. Whatever the party came in here for, they had better do it fast.

The forest of flesh is waking up, and it is so very hungry.
