Rise of the Runelords
One of the oldest industries in town, the Sandpoint glassworks has been owned by the Kaijitsu family from the town’s inception. The glassworking trade has been in the family for generations, and many of their techniques – perfected in distant Minkai – result in dazzling and impressive works that fetch top price among nobles of Magnimar, Korvosa, and beyond.
Not-so-hidden Sandpoint lore, however, says that the Glassworks were once a front for smuggling operation. The tunnel used for the operation was bricked up by Rokuro Kaijitsu years ago.
This is all in the past, however. The status of the Glassworks is up in the air following a night raid by goblins, led by Tsuto Kaijitsu, which resulted in the deaths of eight employees and then-head of the Kaijitsu family, Lonjiku. After the goblins were put down, and Tsuto arrested, ownership of the Glassworks, as well as the head seat of the Kaijitsu family, has passed to Lonjiku’s younger daughter, Rusty Dragon owner Ameiko. What she plans to do with the Glassworks following the attack and murders remains unanswered.
