Stronghold of the Damned
In the Amn region of Faerun, near the Sword Coast.
Keczulla (“ZUH-lah” as pronounced by the local populace) is classified as a metropolis (pop. approx. 47,322). Hundreds of years ago this area was settled due to the abundant gold and iron deposits. The town fell on hard times once those mines became depleted. It is, however, beginning to experience new growth with the discovery of gems approximately 50 years ago.
Even though it is along two fairly well-traveled trade routes in this trade-rich region, Keczulla is seldom host to any rumor-worthy happenings. It is, however, an ideal location to find employ. This is a popular rest-stop for many caravans, and other traveling groups. Guards typically need to be replenished periodically along Amn’s trade routes, especially further to the south of here (where an organized army led by 2 Ogre mages haves successfully held the southernmost cities in the region following a bloody campaign to seize the gold resources in the area.).
It is here that our adventurers find themselves, for one reason or another, each answering the request pegged to many tavern walls: see the post
