Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #107

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #107 

April 17th, 2023 

  • Number: 107 

  • Name: Cloudy Glass Beach aka Northpoint 

  • Location: Northcoast of Noldrune north of the Clearview Glassworks 

  • Population (approx.): 135 (village) and 10-12 visiting glassblowers at any time 

  • Brief: Competiton in business is inevitable thus when word spread of the remarkable works created at Clearview Glassworks (#39), other glassblowers flocked to the area to see what they could beg, borrow or steal. Some of those transient crafters settled in Northpoint, an old fishing village, about 6 miles up the coast. Over the years, the villagers have watched their visitors trying all manner of things to achieve Clearview’s results including mining the surrounding land, sifting the local beaches a hundred times over, various alchemical experimentation with explosive results, and hiring their boats to dredge sand from the ocean floor. More desperate people have tried spying, bribery, attempting to rob outgoing shipments or trying to break into the Glassworks.  

  • Geography: Northpoint is a typical fishing village with a small townhall, a chapel to the Seas, a couple of inns, a general store, stables, other crafters and surrounding residences and farms. The influx of visiting crafters has helped the village through some recent harsh winters. The locals smile at the nickname bestowed upon the village, after the first failed attempts to replicate the successes at Clearview.
