Skull Crossing

"Skull Crossing" refers to two separate sites on the Continent of Corwyn:


THE SKULL CROSSING DAM; LOCATED IN NORTHERN CYRENDAR

Skull Crossing is an ancient Dam built in far northern Cyrendar, that keeps the icy waters of the Storval Deep contained, and controls the flow of the Willow River into the lowlands below. Downstream, where the river flows into Claybottom Lake, is the small settlement of Turtleback Ferry.

The Dam was built over a thousand years ago by the "Stor-Val;" an ancient tribe of Stone Giants; whose skills in engineering were second to none.

For unknown reasons, the Stone-Giants of Stor-Val had an obsession with skulls, and the dam is decorated with five gigantic stone skulls that serve as water valves. These valves release the titanic pressure of the waters constantly building up in Storval Deep as a result of melting snows flowing down from the peaks of the Crystalpeak Mountains.

Even though the giants who built it are long gone; today, the dam is maintained by humans from Turtleback Ferry.


THE ROAD JUNCTION OF SKULL CROSSING; LOCATED IN THE BORDERLANDS

Skull Crossing is the name of the junction of the East Road and the Border Road in the southern tip of Mystwood.
