The Twin Posters of Sool, The Airstones of Sool and The Stormfish of Sool, depict exactly the same place in the southern mountains of Wildergorn, but at different times. Together they capture the everyday life (?!) of the people and curious creatures to be encountered in the Stalkhouse City of Sool.

 

From the natural honeycomb of tunnels in the mountains that surround them, the people of Sool extract the precious rod-shaped crystals of Solpheen. Sought after for it’s vision-enhancing and spell-neutralising properties, Solpheen is delivered throughout Wildergorn by the mysterious, gravity-defying creatures they call Bobols. At home in Sool, the Bobols carry the people and their goods to and fro amongst the swaying Stalkhouses of their aerial city and whilst they might look like balloons, it is said that if a Bobol is sitting on the ground it cannot be lifted, no matter how many people try, which is why they are also known as Airstones.

 

Nobody knows how something that heavy can fly, yet four Bobols can support a fully laden Shopcart easily. Not one person has ever fallen from a terrace and come to harm, for the Bobols can sense a person falling and will follow them down faster than lightning : one touch of their snout and that person will stop and float in mid air.

 

In Sool, every Stalkhouse has a Bobol Dome on top, which is where the Bobols stay at night; and each house has a water feeder and a full size Bobol Kiln in which to make Lava-smoke from powdered rock. That is all the Bobols require: smoke and water. They used to live in the wild, feeding from volcanoes and hot fissures in the ground, but when the people of Sool learned how to make the same smoke irresistibly delicious by the inclusion of herbs and spices, the Bobols came eagerly to live with their human companions. To the touch they feel like warm stone, ancient, wise and safe. The Bobols can understand humans but they have their own language, their voices sounding like soft, flutey horns - nobody knows what they're saying - and they have a row of little beady black eyes encircling the tops of their heads, so it’s impossible to tell what they’re looking at either.

Everything, say the people of Sool …
