The Heart of a Defiled Land
Stablemaster of Skalin's Rib
When caravans pull into town, their beasts of burden need a place to stay. Smaller, easily manageable creatures such as the crodlu, inix and kank are kept in stables and pens adjoining the Fools Bazaar. Skalin’s Rib has very strict rules that larger creatures, such as the gargantuan mekillot, are kept apart from town in a wide, shallow box canyon, where their uncommon but deadly rages can be contained. Chikk-Tlik the stablemaster and his crew of fellow thri-kreen keep the animals fit and healthy. Customers know their animals are in good hands (or rather, claws) when they’re in Skalin’s Rib.
