Earthdawn: Down the River
Dunhold is a medium sized city on the western part of Cara Fahd, between the Greenheart River and Liaj River. To the Northwest is a large expanse of jungle leading up to the Twilight Peaks.
Dunhold is named for the Dunlock Inn, which is a large stone building about 4 stories tall. Legend says that the Dunlock Inn was built alongside a caravan route by a retired Adept in a week. It is known in the region as one of the most secure inns in existence as it looks more like a fortress then anything else (there is not a single widow in the place wider then a foot for example). The city grew up around it experiencing a major boost in population with the declaration of Cara Fahd. Orcs are the vast majority here (somewhere between 75 and 85% of the population) and run the government (the mayor, the head judge, the captain of horse and captain of the guard are all orcs.
Due to the caravan route the city is fairly wealthy although no where close to say Bartertown or some of the great cities along the Serpant River and has attracted some adepts. Such as the theif Adept Bluebird who has taken over the theives of the city and seeks to liven things up a bit.
