Into that Darkness Peering: A Tale of the Lonely Coast
Wolverton rests on the rocky shores of the far-flung Lonely Coast. The mighty fortress Caer Syllan keeps a protective eye over its harbor which hosts ships from all over the world coming to trade for the precious metals and gems pulled from the nearby mines. A muddy, noisy place, Wolverton is home to hardy frontier folk eking a living from the earth while contending with half-goblin tribes, packs of shadow wolves and other monsters dwelling in the nearby Tangled Woods.
Although the town serves as Lord Locher’s seat and the capital of the Lonely Coast, Wolverton’s muddy streets are far from safe. While regular patrols ward Wolverton and the surrounding villages from monstrous incursions, new threats rise to weaken the Lochers’ iron-fisted grip. Merchants tired of high taxes and tariffs secretly plot ways to take power while in the streets smuggler gangs fight one another in a vicious turf war. Beyond these threats lurk even greater dangers.
