Kharzhunwold - First Hill - NW

City Hall - Baphil’s City Hall sits at the highest point of Kharzhunwold, at the northwestern most end of Riddlewarren Street. The roadway climbs toward City Hall in a series of stairways carved into the hillside and ends at a flattened courtyard girdled by a low stone balustrade. A second point of egress pierces the rail to the west, where a series of stairways leads to Nodolbo Tower. The City Hall itself is a great, round domed building, three stories high. The domed roof is copper plated, as are the doors which are reached by a low railed stair. Several old Blueneedle pines (pine trees) grow near the compound.

Nodolbo Tower - the tower of ravens, shaped rather like a grain silo, twenty five feet tall, built atop the second highest point of Kharzhunwold, accessible only from the City Hall. Ravens are kept here to carry messages. Blueneedle pines grow close up to the balustrade which encompasses its grounds.

Public Works Buildings- snow removal, stonemasons, architects, engineers, etc.

Armory - weapons, armor storage for the city.

Homes for citizens.

Fundhun Plaza - a common on the northwest flank of Kharzhunwold, reached by ascending the carven stair which Riddlewarren becomes as it ascends toward the City Hall. The Plaza is a large, flattened court cut into the hillside, where water can be gathered by Baphil’s citizens. Riddlewarren Street circles around the Plaza to either side, climbing the hillside to merge again some distance above it. On the wall at the northwestern end of the Plaza, a solemn dwarven face spills water into a great stone basin.

Inventor Gozer’s Salvage Shop - Gozer’s shop sits high on Kharzhunwold, a silo shaped tower with a large telescope piercing the roof.
