The Swallowed Sun
Poll Dubh Doracha
The Poll Dubh Doracha (pronounced “powel duve dur-ACK-ah”) is a mountain fortress on the southern end of the Tiglas Mountains. Abandoned for decades (if not centuries), it has become the home of the Bolg Mor. The giant keeps the trade along the river safe from the various threats of the Tiglas range (orcs and worse), but does demand tribute from trade caravans. Those that fail to offer sufficient tribute may find themselves relieved of all their cargo, or worse if they invite the Bolg Mor’s wrath.
The fortress itself is a small cavern network that overlooks the river from several hundred feet up a winding mountain path. A few turns down from the entrance, a massive pile of bones serves as a warning to those that approach. Streams and cascades dot the mountainside on the approach as well, which can mask the approach of giant footsteps.
