The Fall of Sarpedon
Named for the ruddy, rough tributary that runs through it, Dark Rapids is a boom town whose growth has been fueled by the discovery of gold. As such, it is a magnet for all manner of opportunistic individuals both good and evil, and the rule of law is often subverted by the sword or or a generous bribe.
Dark Rapids is currently occupied by troops of the city-state of Jal Gorda under the command of Lord Protector Blackthorne. The party has now also discovered that the extensive sewer system beneath the town is actually the buried remains of a grand temple dedicated to the Raven Queen during The Age of Magic.
