Murder in Baldur's Gate
Wyrm's Rock and Crossing
The first sign of civilization that a traveler boating on the Chionthar or coming overland from the south or east is likely to see is Wyrm’s Rock, a impressive fort rising high above the surface of the water. Wyrm’s Crossing, the bridge that arches over the river’s slowly flowing water, connects the fort islet to the Outer City districts of Twin Songs to the north and Rivington to the south.
Buildings and merchant stalls, ranging from ramshackle to elaborate, pile atop each other along the entire length of Wyrm’s Crossing, making it impossible to see the water from the narrow, congested roadway that cuts between the structures.
Wyrm’s Rock is a formidable fortress. Arrow slits dot its foot-thick granite walls, promising a stiff challenge to anyone foolhardy engouth to assault the structure from the water.
