Dry Gulch

Dry Gulch

Dry Gulch was founded on the dried bed of the Ts’tang river. The Great Shattering altered the course of the river many centuries ago, creating the west branch of the Zang river and Fang lake and leaving a dry gulch in place where the Ts’tang river once flowed. Dry Gulch is a fisherman town that also has a tiny port and some mining interests in the Icepick Ridge. Although the weather in the region is particularly harsh the position of the town within the gulch protects it from the fierce winds in the region, and a sophisticated series of dams and drains carved out of the gulch’s walls prevents the city from flooding in the rainy and snowy winter months.
