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.

       By: Incarnadine

Stormbound, the ship rolls hard over to once side. All that is not strapped down is tossed violently overboard in a splash of freezing water.

There, on the horizon- a tower. Squat, it stands alone on a tiny island. However, it's the only land in sight, and any more of this ferocious storm will crush the boat to splinters.

Taking shelter within the ornate entryway of the squat tor, the party notes with interest that no signs of life break the silence of the stone tower. As they take another step forward, they realise why.

Traps.

This is the fabled tower of Brenji, a rich merchant who wished none to share his enormous wealth. He constructed this tower to store his gold- trapped and ready for any potential thieves. But the ingenious pitfalls and scything walls are not the only dangers within the silent walls of the building. A guardian, left behind by Brenji, still stalks these very halls.

A rattling hiss echoes somewhere from below...
