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


THE SKULL CROSSING DAM OF ISKANDAR


Skull Crossing is an ancient, gigantic dam, which 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 engineering skills were second to none.

For unknown reasons, the Stor-Val had an obsession with skulls, so 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 the Kingdom of Iskandar.
