The Settlement of Confluence, or as Venture Farno insists on calling it, the City of Confluence, lies in the foothills south of the World's Spine Mountains. The settlement is a bustle with construction. Carts full of stone and iron arrive from the mountains, and lumber is brought in from the Great Woods. Several half-completed structures have been erected, and only the smithy has been completed. A wall is being built in what is to be the center of Confluence, which will guard the Guildhouse of the Black Sky. Outside of the walls are a set of large tents, the temporary lodging of the Guild.
