Welcome to Bridgetown
Bridgetown is a gargantuan re-purposed fortress, spanning a great canyon and built by Mountain Dwarves in an age lost to time. Today, it is a city and trade hub, commanding the river far below, as well as mountain passes to the north that lead into the savage Northern Taiga, and the King’s Road leading south to the Kingdom of Rhoenia.
You, the players, are members of a new band of explorers, adventurers, and mercenaries. The game will begin with you just turning your charter into the Bridgestone Explorers Guild.
