Note: This image is somewhat inverted in its perception. The gateway leading into the dim red cavern is actually leading out of the city. The mountainous wall is the opening to the vast expanse that is Duskheim.

Shimmering Span

  • Massive bridge that spans across the lake
  • Uses stalagmites (rising from the water) as support beams, but off-set arches to make it closer to symmetrical
  • Sounds
    • Constant sound of thin streams of water falling from above
    • Hammers and forges from below
    • Gibbering of Kobolds from below
    • Constant creaking of the Forgemaster’s Wheel
  • Sights
    • Everything has a pale bluish color from the lake
      • Water glows blue only when disturbed
    • Forgemaster’s Wheel turning alongside the Eversmoking ’Mite
      • Purple glows through windows as hot steel his lowered into the fire
    • Sparse boats moving about on the lake, with a glow around and in its wake

Mindflayer Occupation

At the start of the campaign, Duskheim has been under the occupation of Mind Flayers for almost ten years. Though the Mind Flayers are never seen, they have taken over the minds of countless thralls throughout the city. Some even suspect the king himself, Dorin Stonejaw is under the Mind Flayer rule.
