Glasgow to Edinburgh

December 30th, 2015

The iron horse dropped the party off at the azure palace of Hotel Indigo, which was quite handily located in the middle of the sprawling metropolis of Edinburgh.

Here we have one of the many fortifications surrounded by metal fencing that helped drive off the combined orc/hobgoblin invasion of 1435. Led by the orcish chieftain Hr’rok, this attack was the high water mark for the alliance, but the resolute defenders of Glasgow, aided by local deep gnomes and for-hire magic users from Greyhawk, repulsed the combined forces and drove the humanoids back into the hinterlands.
