The Shackled City
Redgorge (village): Conventional; AL CG; Population 600 adults, Mixed (79% human, 9% dwarf, 5% gnome, 3% halfling, 2% elf, 1% half-elf, 1% half-orc).
This village was the first human settlement in the area. Founded about 700 years ago, Redgorge was at one time a much larger settlement. It sits in a narrow strip of flat ground between a cliff and an immense quarry of red pebble gravel. West of the village, a prodigious line of fortifications known as the Basalt Bastions protect the land, their massive walls unguarded and draped with vines. These fortifications, as impressive as Cauldron‘s outer walls, tower over the village itself. They were build ages ago by Surabar Spellmason’s powerful spells in a single week, to aid in the defense of Redgorge against the denizens of the Demonskar.
Today, Redgorge is a farming and mining village. The old Stonemason District, where Spellmason once dwelt, is visibly depopulated and most of its buildings lie empty and in ruin. Over the decades, most of Redgorge’s masons left to work in Cauldron.
