Campaign of the Month: October 2016
Luskan, City Of Sails
In the years after the Spellplague, Luskan fell into ruin. Over the next century, the rulership of the city changed from hand to claw to hand so many times that it would be nigh-impossible to document them in any kind of detail. The result was a mockery of a true city. Most buildings were ruined and murderers and demon-worshipers roamed the streets freely, plying their trade in broad daylight. Wretched tribes skulked in the shadows and the fetid bog that was once the estuary of the River Mirar was infested with aquatic horrors. The place became a haven for escaped criminals who, while escaping punishment for their crimes would likely die on the end of a psychopath’s blade or a monster’s claw. Other than the Host Tower of the Arcane, the city was dominated by two- and three-story buildings.
BRIDGES OF LUSKAN
The city was split into northern and southern halves by the River Mirar, and these were connected by three bridges.
North Bridge known as Upstream Span
Middle Bridge known as Dalath’s Span
South Bridge known as Harbor Cross
