The Edge of the Knife
The city of Casimir is a joint human and dwarf controlled project. The city is in an immense natural cavern in the middle of the Goliath’s Teeth. The city is carved from the gigantic stalactites on the roof of the cavern and additional space comes from wooden balconies and bridges attached to these rock formations. The cavern has a lake at its bottom of undetermined depth. The surface of this lake has been found to be at sea level, though the lake is freshwater.
Casimir was founded for the purpose of following the rich seams of valuable metals that seem to center on the area. The city proper is occupied by miners and others directly tied to the various companies that run the city. It has a connection to a surface settlement that provides rest and relaxation for the miners after they come off their contracts, and which serves as a major hub for trade between the dwarven settlements that occupy the surrounding mountains. A fairly well maintained highway connects the surface settlement to Nanmor. Plans are currently in the works to continue the road across the mountains to the Savage Lands once they have been well and truly civilized.
