Cliffside is one of many small communities in the Bay of Fins, a shallow curve of great cliffs on the Bronze Island. The town derives its name from its location within a series of caves and tunnels that dive directly into the rock just above where the ocean laps the island’s walls. The current inhabitants of Cliffside – mostly Humans and Halflings – claim little credit for their town. The ancestors of the townsfolk came to squat, like so many communities on the Bronze Island, in the ruins of a once grander maritime empire. Overtime they made it comfortable from one generation to the next, and eventually home; though the ancient architecture of the site never lets anyone truly forget that Cliffside’s citizens are not natives.
