The village of Emerald Hills is nestled in the northwest corner of Dragoveld, at the northern end of the Durgan’s Shield mountain range. It is built on the remains of an ancient dwarven hold. Seventy five years ago, the settlement sprang into prominence when rich deposits of emerald were discovered in the surrounding mountains. The “Green Rush”, as it was known, lasted perhaps 10 years before the emerald veins were mined out, and the village was largely abandoned. Few heard from the citizens of Emerald Hills in the intervening years. The occasional shipment of lumber, furs, or copper ore made its way down through the mountain passes, but the village was largely forgotten. Then, just six months prior to the campaign’s beginning, whispers began to circulate of the discovery of rich veins of flash crystal – the key ingredient in the manufacture of Thunderdust. Since the kingdom of Erogas recently learned the secret of making Thunderdust, human engineers (both royal and private) are paying huge sums for supplies of flash crystal. The rumors are drawing the greedy, optimistic, and starry-eyed to Emerald Hills once again.
