The Sewers of Stoneholt


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: ilya

While traversing the tractless deserts of Shezmu, the pc's come across a travelling caravan led by Vual, the Demon-Camel, the Lord of Lust, the Thrice-Humped...Vual is cursed to only be able to assume one form outside the Abyss, that of a rather large, golden-skinned three-humped camel,with a frog-like, black, barbed tongue......

Vual is the demonic manifestation of Lust...his followers, a cult of truly disturbed individuals, engage in bizarre orgies, travelling the desert towns, "entertaining" the desert folk with their perverse antics...

Vual's Rapture is what the cultists call their monthly festival, where they perform perverse rites to honor Vual...ofcourse folk come from great distances to witness the festivals, despite themselves, and the Cult of Vual welcomes all...

Surprisingly for such a hideous creature, Vual has the power to beguile and charm with his magical voice. His voice will always sound to pcs as the voice of the person they most desire...his followers also gain this ability slowly over time...

When the pc's meet with Vual, he tries to seduce them into joining his cult. If for whatever reason the pc's resist..well then... Vual would probably kill them for sport, as a lesson for those who "resist Vual's love"....
