The Maw of the Dragon
The journey from Telle was a long one, but after days of hiking over foothills and fending off the occasional bandit attack, the road re-materialises. You pass the occasional shack or farm, and before you know it you’re in the sprawling sub-urban area that is Hollybridge. Walking through the town, you notice posters on every wall advertising a carnival being held nearby. You come across what appears to be the town square, with a large armour-clad statue in the middle. You can see the town hall, some sort of foreign embassy, and an enormous cathedral, with a clock tower reaching high into the sky. In front of the town hall is a notice board and a smaller, nondescript statue. Exits are north, south and east.
- The smaller statue is a stationary tour guide. A virtual intelligence. It will instruct the party about things in Hollybridge (taverns, places of interest etc). If asked where something is (specific name) it will raise a hand and point. When asked specific things, it will seem to know a lot more than it should, due to its magical nature (i.e. name of killer, will point to clocktower).
- Foreign embassy is the Embassy of Winne, who constructed the VI statue as a gift to the people of southern Sylphania. Will act cautiously towards Pygmalion, and will usher him out if the team lingers for too long.
*Church is temple of Erathis. Tower is home to murderer from Yawning Portal. Head priest will offer to heal party and will sell a few potions/scrolls.
