ADVENTURE LIES JUST AROUND THE NEXT BEND IN THE RIVER! Welcome to the infamous city of Scarrport, a seedy trade port on the banks of the mighty Torberyn River where it converges with the Wellspring River. Scarrport is widely known as the gateway to the Hellfury Peaks - a mysterious region where evil festers in every crag, it's influence spreading across the region like a raging firestorm. Unholy hell spawn roam the rugged mountain range, preying on unwary travelers and adventurers who seek to make their fortunes exploring the countless ruins dotting the land. Dangerous cults who worship dark gods riddle Scarrport's four boroughs, using the city as a base of operations from which they spread their influence to other kingdoms. No place for the naive, the thieves and grifters of Scarrport lurk around every corner of this bustling city, preying on newcomers like a school of night fang eels on deep water trout. The unwary are soon parted with their money and possessions in this dangerous city or on the myriad river boats that stop in Scarrport to offload goods and pick up passengers. Yet, despite its unsavory reputation, Scarrport is a magnet for heroes in search of adventure. From the brothels, drug houses and gambling dens of the Fens to the boats traveling the Torberyn and Wellspring Rivers, or beyond the city in the demon-infested Hellfury Peaks and the tangled Dark Wood, the possibilities for adventure are boundless.
