Dragonknights: On The Verge
Whittle’s Bluff is the former capitol of Islidia, and a major commercial center of the nation. Wagon caravans from all corners converge upon Whittle’s Bluff before traveling southward towards Scalar along the River Mabel. Oceanic vessels can travel no further north, and schooners from Lake Emudy can travel no further south as a great waterfall bisects the River Mabel, making it impassible for vessels. Porters and carts unload and transport goods from ships on each side of the falls, and load them onto ships or caravans on the other side to complete their voyage. As a center point for transport, Whittle’s Bluff is often home to intrigue and smugglers. Outside of the falls, Whittle’s Bluff itself is an old, generally quiet city, surrounded by farmland and forest. Whittle’s Bluff is ruled by a proxy of the Duke of Mabel (the Queen’s brother), and is also home to the Duke’s large manor.
