The Communities of NaEssad :The Spiral’s End.

The long spiraling path from the base of Vostin’s Fang to the bottom is dotted with and inns and waystations, many of which are little more than flat hollows that a caravan can pull in to or small fortified buildings that trade goods and coin for a safe rest protected from opportunistic raiders and unexpected plumes of poison gas.

One of the best known inns is Spiral’s End, more a small village than a mere inn. A generation ago, a band of adventurers who made their fortune in the Fang decided to retire. They hollowed out an enclave near the end of the Spiral Road, set up an inn, and began lives as semi-retired adventurers. Their construction, unbeknownst to them, intersected a Korred nest. The short and furry little creatures decided to adopt the adventurers instead of trying to drive them off. The heroes were bemused by a clan of what were usually thought of as a nusance or a dungeon monster. The clan first everyone else second behavior of the Korred transferred to their adopeted clan, and they have been known to be fierce in protection of their strange brightsighted family. The generation f children that grew up with Korred nannys are very well protected, both by retired adventurers, and by a whole swarm of hive living tricksters.

Spiral’s End incorporated as an independent city both with the Dwarven Line and the city Sanctuary after having short words with various authorities after a few adventurers tried to treat their adoptive clan like monsters.

Today the Spiral’s End is a friendly place where Dwarves, merchants, and Korred mix in relatively frictionless peace. Only one of the original band remains, a Dwarven matriarch who watches her human allies’ children and grand children and the whole tribe of rat-like peoplewith a mixed air of fondness and a fierce protectiveness.
