Blood-Clans of Jorikk: Settlement Guide #1
If you’re coming to the Blood-Clans of Jorikk for the first
time, we recommend taking a moment to familiarize yourself with the
intro material on the website, found at http://kenzerco.com/jorikk.
The young logging town of Drhuyl is a rough and violent place ruled by
loggers, ranchers and fishermen. Outsiders are not much trusted, and
are generally given a hard time. All the landed interests in Drhuyl are
Fhokki, and non-Fhokki are openly discriminated against, if not
Most common goods may be bought in Drhuyl, though luxuries and things
of rare origin are found only by chance. The town enjoys able tradesmen
that can mend or make most anything under the purview of their craft.
There is much of beer, liquor, gaming and whoring in Drhuyl. The two
main beer-halls are rough and violent places where most of the men
spend their hard-earned money. The bathhouses, owned by the Rolff
family (see below), are also brothels. The water is brackish and
lukewarm, and the sounds of patrons being serviced by slave women can
be heard from as far away as the central court turnabout. Of course
many customers aren’t above getting a bob in public, perhaps in the
washing yard or in the bathhouse itself, as a room costs as much as a
cluusti (also said to be the going rate for that service).
For those needing coin, there is usually work in the stables and cattle
yard, especially when herds are moved in and out. The Jodlutt Forest is
said to still be rich in fur-bearing animals, though it is quite
untamed and shows sign of increased Orc activity. Armsmen can almost
always find work out of Drhuyl protecting merchant caravans headed up
the Western Road to Ormyn. Cattle merchants sometimes hire as much as a
dozen armsmen at a time to protect their herds on western-bound
journeys to places like Dhrurkk and Dhreth. Free-warriors also use
Drhuyl as a staging point for scalping expeditions into the middle
Scalps can be exchanged for coin anywhere in Drhuyl, though prices are
about fifty percent less than in Narr’Rytarr. The Rolff family is said
to claim a twenty-five percent cut off all scalp transactions in the
town, one of the many rights the family guards with jealous brutality.
Drhuyl is located within the Middle
Plains of Drhokker
