Granite Falls (Feldsparoon)
The town of Granite Falls (gnomish name Feldsparoon) is a hidden village located in an isolated river valley surrounded on all sides by massive walls of rock. The village is only accessible by air (via flight spells—or other magical means such as the village’s flying ship) or by traveling the underground river that flows through the depths of the ancient rock-gnome city of Kalickara.
The villagers manufacture air ships—an ancient gnomish technology predating the shattering, which is now known only to the small population of Granite Falls. Granite falls nearest neighbors are the gnomes of Kalickara, and the ancient Cave Dwarven city of Baradush.
Of late, Ogres following the Orcish god Orgush, and working closely with Vashyrn Thale-
a former noble of Lanyr-have invaded the city of Kalickara, driving many rock-gnome refugees to Feldsparoon. The villagers have taken in refugees grudgingly, acknowledging their duty to protect their kinsmen, but dreading the drain on the isolated village’s limited resources. Rumor has it that the dwarves of Baradush have fortified their defenses in order to keep the prolliferating gnomish population from seeking to expand within the borders of their cavern kingdom.
