All Days

NJ 002

(Niao Jiang Highlands) The Niao Jiang winds a narrow path through high mountains. The valley on either side varies from zero to a few hundred yards. Many small mountain streams fill the river along its path and many small villages line its sides.

The Niao Jiang in a major river. A road stretches along its length from Hel Churl to Nu Gong Zao and is used to haul boats upstream back to Hel Churl.

There are no villages of more than a twenty thousand people along the river. The villages survive because they are staging posts for the ponies used to haul the boats upstream or from subsistence farming on the river plains and terraced mountain fields or fishing.
All of the villages are closely allied with Hel Churl and for the first twenty four days 90% of the male population is away fighting the war at Wu Tze Lee for the army of Hel Churl. After this the place is in celebration for the rest of the module and the players will be welcomed with open arms if they say they also fought for the army of Hel Churl.
The villages have all the things you would expect: temples to Buddhism and Taoism, Government departments, shops. Most are closed for the first twenty six days.
The players will be able to get their passports stamped at the customs office, which is running on a skeleton staff for the first twenty six days, in any village of more than five thousand people.
The locals know/believe the following.
They are on the side of Hel Churl.
That Wu Tze Lee is the most evil man in the world.

After day 24:

The brilliant forces of Hel Churl won the war. There are even people in town who were there!
The evil forces of Prince Hei Ho Bang and Wu Tze Lee were routed by the good and just forces of Hel Churl.
The people who were fighting at Wu Tze Lee, think that Hang Bu Fang, Leader of Hel Churl, has the opals.
If they leave.
