Take The Money And Run
A town at the edge of a Dwarven subterranean empire, and a sprawling, sparsely populated Human ruled county. The area is essentially a lightly explored wilderness, and this is the only major city for hundreds of miles above ground. The city is built into the southwestern side of a mountain within the Stalton mountain ranges running to the southeast, with tundra to the north, and dense boreal forests to the east and west.
The city is naturally a mining and quarrying center, with access to rich veins of all kinds of precious metals. Clustered farms surround the city with upside down farms extending further into the forests underground. Verily, the city is about have above ground, and half below. The population is partially segregated, the dwarves residing primarily below, and all other races above.
Steinbruch is ruled by monarch, King Alftand Frederick-Stalton, with little influence outside the city. King Alftand is regarded by other regional leaders as a very weak leader, and their disgust is widely known, and has caused a rift and tensions in the region.
