The Tablelands and You - A Dark Sun Primer
You arrived in Batroun nearly a month ago, shortly after the news of King Kalak’s death reached your ears. A client village of Tyr, Batroun is a trading town near a quarry in the Tablelands. The official governor is Idris, a Templar of Tyr, but word has it that the real mover and shaker in Batroun is Madae, a merchant with a shady past.
Batroun is surrounded by rocky badlands, mesas, and buttes, and is occasionally plagued by silt runners and bandit raids. Tyr has spent a lot of money ensuring it’s safety, however, and the town boasts a small militia capable of holding of the occasional raid. It’s certainly not a pleasant little burg, but it’s the kind of place you can make a few coins and forge some alliances.
