Treasure-hunters seeking riches in the heart of the Kalduhr will frequently make a stop at Fort Duhrin, which is a half-day’s journey from the terrible forest. Fort Duhrin is a bustling crossroads community ruled by a Governor and a contingent of elite warriors known as the kingsguard. What else do we know about Fort Duhrin?
@jesseross and I are putting together a standalone book for the Trophy RPG (the game and its many expansions are currently featured in each new issue of Codex). One of the things we’re going to do with this book is include numerous tables that help flesh out the world Trophy takes place in. Keeping with the spirit of Trophy as a community project, we’re going to be crowdsourcing many of the elements that go into these tables.
Today we’re starting with Fort Duhrin, which is mentioned in several places throughout the various Trophy publications. We’re looking for 3 types of contributions to help flesh out Fort Duhrin:
1. Personalities you might encounter in Fort Duhrin.
2. Ways in which the fort has been changed by its proximity to the Kalduhr forest.
3. Rumors heard about Fort Duhrin.
You can submit as many entries as you wish, in any or all categories, by posting a reply here. By submitting here, you agree to let us use your contribution in the Trophy standalone book and PDF (you will be credited as a contributor). Submissions should be fairly brief (no more than a sentence or two). Here are some examples:
“Jacol Pyree is the best fence in the entire kingdom. When something… unsavory is dislodged from the Kalduhr, he’ll not only find a buyer for it, but will get it safely past the kingsguard—and all for an entirely reasonable 50% cut of the proceeds.”
“A cottage industry of heroic, mournful songs about the Kalduhr—and the treasure-hunters who seek to conquer it—has sprung-up in Fort Duhrin. For a few silver, you can make sure your own bravery is immortalized with a verse.”
“Rumors abound that the Governor himself is a former treasure-hunter, and that he built Fort Duhrin not in service to the king, but at the behest of something that lies in the heart of the malignant woods.”
