Each member of the Council of Five votes on a particular issue, majority wins. On some more important issues, a unanimous vote is needed.
The river running down the center of Crina, seperating East-Bank from West-Bank is known as the frost-forge river. There is a ferry service that runs across the channel every day. A single passenger can ride for a mere copper piece. Horses and larger sized creatures can ride at double the cost.
Thog’s Grog: On the road out of Crina. Has good grog, made and served by a half-orc named Thog.
The Rotting Kobold: This bar, located in the northeast slums of Crina boasts the worst alcohol in the city. It also boasts the best bar-fights in the city. Rumored occaissonally to have a b.y.o.b. barfight.
The Salty Sea Dog: This coastal Bar is warm and cheery and typically feels very safe to travelers. Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the bar exists in multiple towns that possess access to a large body of water. Regardless, when you leave you always return to the city you came in from.
Gallows Square: A place of public execution, Gallows Square is located in the southwest part of East-Bank.
Temple Square: This square, with an ornate fountain depicting the struggles of the gods, is located in the northwestern part of East-Bank. A fair number of merchants peddle their wares here.
The Frost Forge River: The Frost Forge River splits Crina down the middle. In its center is a wedge shaped island known as Sickle Island
Sickle Island: This island is named such because it is shaped like an ice sickle.
Leoman’s: This magical item shop features many spell components available on the shelves as you enter. The magical items are always kept behind the counter. A playful gnome known as Eogeo Leoman runs this successful business. Leoman’s is located several blocks from the Frost Forge River, about half-way between the north and south of East-Bank.
Russell’s Scroll Shop: This store is identified by the simple wooden sign in the shape of an unrolled scroll. It has a large selection of most spells. This shop is located about fifteen minutes walk north of Leoman’s.
Grondir’s Tomb: This tomb, located in the southeast of West-Bank, is the resting place of Grondir, a famous dwarf who harbored political refugees during the Kharogoren wars.
The Hole: This secret hideout supposed to house the MacKita Brothers is very difficult to find. Though Crina is a city of tens of thousands of people, nobody seems to know where it is. Some believe there is a secret path that will lead you to it, but you’d have to have been there to know where it is.
