Subterranean Enclave: Flenheim

Flenheim is a wretched, horrible place. Wretched in dancing shadows, the derro enclave is renowned for its flesh crafters—derro skilled in the art of enhancing their customer’s bodies by grafting or infusing the body parts of others onto their own. Flenheim is also at the centre of a growing slave trade and many come here to browse the wares at the Collectors’ Lodge and the Shadow Market.

Subterranean Enclave: Dilath’s Hold

The centre of the slave trade in the region, Dilath’s Hold is an aberration. Founded by a renegade drow nobleman, within its precincts drow and duergar live (relatively) peacefully. However, all is not well in Dilath’s Hold. Among its folk, racial tensions simmer, and the lust for wealth and power corrupt those already perverted by the flesh trade. For now, the ancient treaty binding the two races remains intact, but there are many living in Dilath’s Hold that dream of re-writing the compact…in blood.

Subterranean Enclave: Fanghome Reviewed

“Brian Wiborg Mønster delivers in this little pdf chock-full of brilliant hooks: From a wholly iconic place, to a unique economy and the smart consideration for the needs of an inhuman race, this place is a great enclave to visit, breathing the spirit of early pulp in all the right ways – hinting, inspiring, without prescribing, all while delivering just enough to make this an astounding read.”

–Endzeitgeist (five stars + seal of approval)

Subterranean Enclave: Fanghome

Set among the ancient ruins of a fallen empire and standing on a bare escarpment overlooking the so-called Twilight Jungle, Fanghome is a relatively peaceful troglodyte settlement. Fanghome’s prosperity is built upon the Zji-Zji berry which the troglodytes have learnt, after a fashion, to cultivate and which they sell to those visitors brave enough to enter their fetid home. Not all is peaceful, however, in Fanghome for the troglodytes are an ancient race that once worshipped ancient, fell powers. Once such power has recently taken notice of the troglodytes and has begun to whisper dark dreams of power and conquest into the ear of its newest worshipper.
