Of Kings and Dragons
The town of Frembrudd translates into either Rocky Outcropping or Iron Mount, depending on where the emphasis is placed in the word—and the town certainly features elements of both meanings. Frembrudd perches high on the southern cliffs of Battlewall, where a deep inlet allows fishing boats and whaling ships alike to off load their catches. A series of hoists operated by thralls toiling at immense winches allow goods and people to be swiftly transported up and down the cliff sides between the harbor below and the town above. Frembrudd’s immediate hinterlands feature numerous iron mines and a series of smithies that specialize in shipboard metal goods—many passing captains will send a boat into Frembrudd’s harbor to take possession of a prearranged bit of nautical finery, hoisting the lifts up laden with payment, whether plunder or the fruit of honest trade.
