Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
The twin towns of North Ledopolus and South Ledopolus sit on the shores opposite the island of Ledo. Many dwarves live in these towns, and they are engaged in a great project—the construction of bridges to span the northern fork of the estuary and replace the silt skimmer ferry. The dwarf Bruthambar, chief of the Rockcutter clan, is the head builder and master of the towns.
The giants that inhabit Ledo, a key stepping-stone for any bridge across the estuary, have already torn down two previous bridging attempts. The giants believe that the bridge is a scheme to gain access to their island’s valuable flint deposits. Attempts to bribe them into allowing the construction have proved fruitless. Competing merchant houses make the situation even more difficult. The Wavir, Inika and House Tomblador maintain a presence in Ledopolus.
