Create a ferry between Berez caves and Dvergeheim caves.
« on: April 02, 2024, 02:15:36 AM »
There is an underground river in the caves beneath Berez with a boat in the water already. There is another underground river in the caves between the old Market District tunnels and Dvergeheim. It would make sense that it would be one river running through both cave systems.

I think it would be neat to have a ferry service run by the Berez cultists connecting the two.

Flavorful perhaps.

But I don't think we need more fast travel.

Underground rivers rarely have enough breathing room above them, and Berez isn't important enough to the dwarves for them to want such a thing.

Underground rivers are fun. I always support more fast travel and this is hardly too much more.

Would be interesting, but why have the fast travel option? Neither the cultists nor Berez have much for interest there from what I recall. Dvergeheim isn't much of a hub and you would have to go out of the way to travel to a fast travel service that brings you to another out of the way spot. It's inefficient and I don't see the need.

But... if we were to have an underground river ferry that brings you to a new watery dungeon area, that would be great. Let's say it attaches to dangerous taverns underneath Lake Zarovich.

Dverg already connects to the sewers of vallaki.  Would this river connect to the drain too?  It could be a very cool smuggling route from the docks back there.

Id like a better access to that caliban place in berez tho, during the day im not sure its possible to get there without annoying the citizens. A back entrance to go down there or something. That river ideas isn't bad . but maybe it could lead to that cave near Berez. There isn't much to it. Just an empty cave.

Is there any way to make a ferry that actually crosses the underground river a trip similar to the Vistani caravans?

There already is a faction locked underground tunnel system that runs inbetween the Balinoks and Berez (although it doesn’t connect them)

Possible yes, desirable no. I'm actually in favor of an underground path between Dvergeheim and Berez. The balinoks are riddled with tunnels and this would open new territories where to place new low/mid level dungeons for instance. However, one of the reasons why there is no fast travel between Vallaki and Krofburg is precisely that we wish to preserve this feeling that distances are great and that most Barovian villages are far away and remote. The same logic would apply here. Beside, traveling is an opportunity to RP with your companions and fast travel goes against this ideal.

Grinetrekkers would also rejoice in a lot of new underground areas added. I do t remember the name of the domain off the top of my head but it also would be an inviting place for people from subterranean one to come to.

Expanding the cave system in Barovia would be good. The narrow nature of tunnels generates better roleplay than expansive surface areas. One from Berez, entering the Blighted Woods would be superb.
