The main feature of the town is a lonely bridge across the shallow, white, and treacherous [[River Amp]] in a deep valley. A Troll who inhabits a cave nearby sometimes taxes those who pass over the bridge and those who refuse to pay are clubbed to death. It is from this that the age-old tradition of trolls under bridges stems. Crossing the bridge is the only way to enter the town though.

Trollbridge is a freezing cold town with a population of about 50,000. It is located in the most eastern region of Godville and is overlooked by The World's Apex.


Data

In Godville Times:

  • Day 233 g.e. "Trollbridge city was struck by the attack of lupus. According to the association of limping doctors, the cause of the disease is unhygienic Winged Buffalo strolling near the city."

History

Not much is known about the history of this town but there are countless folk tales which cannot all be trusted mainly because they all contradict each other. Many tell of a period when the weather was sunny and benign and the tourists flocked by the dozen to visit the golden beaches. It is at this point that all the stories diverge and some speak of a fictitious war while others tell of an environmental disaster of epic proportions which changed not only Trollbridge but all of Godville itself. Historians commonly document a heavy meteor shower which plunged Trollbridge into its present state around 20,000 years ago.

Geography

Here, it is too cold to snow. The air blows off the overlooking World's Apex mountain range, filling the air with fine ice crystals. It is one of the coldest places in all the realms, yet still attracts one or two tourists. The land is frozen solid and crusted with ice and the occasional patches of moss. There are not many landmarks around here, excepting the Low Gravity Plains to the south and the River Amp to the east, and it is recommended to wear sunglasses here to protect from snow-blindness.

Distinctive Features

The main feature of the town is a lonely bridge across the shallow, white, and treacherous River Amp in a deep valley. A Troll who inhabits a cave nearby sometimes taxes those who pass over the bridge and those who refuse to pay are clubbed to death. It is from this that the age-old tradition of trolls under bridges stems. Crossing the bridge is the only way to enter the town.

Trade suffers due to the town's location. A trader not far outside the city often saves heroes the trip across the Troll bridge.

The streets are often deserted due to the weather, and the cobbled roads are strewn with waste products. Most residences here are log cabins and the people emerge from these to do business at the port in the occasional period of respite from the otherwise ever-raging gales. The port itself is a dreary affair where passing ships may sometimes be seen.
