How U Mine 4 Fish?
Berrick’s Expedition is the name of the port town that sprung up from what the location originally was: Berrick’s Expedition. Berrick desired to be known for something more than his amazingly safe mining tunnels in the bowels of Stonehaven, and decided to create a quicker trade route to Melmond by destroying a few miles of marshland that composed the landbridge between Corneria and Elfland. Opposition was met by some factions (the largest being Way of the Shalm), but the majority of the merchants of the land desired it, and when trade was slowed by the destruction of the great bridge and the lack of Melmond trade made Corneria desperate, even the King put his weight behind its completion.
Attacks from the Underdark (the majority of which were discovered to be Yuan-Ti) delayed the completion of the pass, but the party eventually cleared the way by saving Berrick’s Gray Render from the tunnels and setting off the charge which ultimately opened the way to Melmond.
