12.14.3 Bloodstone Quarry
Bloodstone Quarry is a recessed semi-circle of cliffs and crags, all stained the same crimson hue as the surrounding terrain. However, unlike the muted unease of the Bloodsands, Bloodstone Quarry has a darkly bustling feel, with a real purpose evident in its very landscape. The rock itself seems to pulse beneath one's feet, rather like the beating of a wicked heart, while an oppressive warmth is more akin to the climate of Dis than that of any desert. Though one can only guess at the reasons for the Quarrys existence, it is clear that much ado is made over the harvesting of the stone of the area itself, with many dark and ominous spectres fleeting on the edge of ones vision, presiding over the work. Various scripts and etchings are evident in many areas of the Quarry, bringing to mind dark and tainted imagery of perhaps the demon plane. Something in the way the light reflects and refracts within the Quarry is distinctly unsettling. Perhaps it is the hue of the stone or the tint of the sky. Or perhaps it is something deeper and darker, threatening the very nature of mortality itself? One never knows, in Bloodstone Quarry.
