Rise of the Runelords 3.75
A small, frontier town just north of the Mushfens where the Skull River meets the Yondakabari River. The townsfolk of TurtleBack Ferry are mainly trappers, hunters, loggers and a few enterprising merchants who enjoy making a living in a rough environment. The town is named for the river ferry made from, not surprisingly, giant turtle shells recovered from Ember Lake.
The town of TurtleBack Ferry is a protectorate of the city of Magnimar and, until recently, The Order of Black Arrows, stationed at nearby Fort Rannick, provided an additional measure of security. The Order has been wiped out by a coordinated ogre invasion, but the fort has been reclaimed by The Sandpoint Five. Fort Rannick is now the primary residence of the Baron Karrnath de Menchi, himself a member of the adventuring group that took back the fort. Extensive repairs and cleanup are underway at this time under the Baron’s direction.
