Campaign of the Month: March 2016
Ptolus, City by the Spire
The Delver’s Guild established the Undercity Market only a few years ago. The master delvers saw it as a launching point for expeditions into the Dungeon. They found a likely underground chamber, cleared and cleaned the place, and sealed off unwanted passages. Of course, they ensured that some major pathways connecting to both the city sewers and Ghul’s Labyrinth were available to those headed off to explore or reach other underground sites. The Undercity Market consists of the Great Hall—a vast chamber used in a similar fashion to the open areas of the North Market—and a number of side chambers that serve as more permanent shops and similar locations.
The Undercity Market is interesting because the goods sold here are aimed almost exclusively at delvers and adventurers. Torches, rope, mining picks, weapons, alchemical items, and so on are the order of the day for shoppers.
The entrance to the Undercity Market is a wide staircase leading down from Delver’s Square in Midtown. Despite the lack of sunlight, Undercity Market shops stay open approximately the same hours as surface stores and marketplaces (from sunup to sundown).
