In my RL D&D game my players are heading down into the last dwarven city (Hig Toduhr) to try to find some military help to overthrow a coup in that's threading their city/state. I'm drawing a blank as what to plot complications to throw at them. Any idea you could give would be most appreciated.
Background of the world; The city Genera (port city inhabiting a naturally fortified fjord) is the last remnant of a collapsed human empire, it's widely viewed as the last civilized outpost. The rest of the world is ruled over by warlords or feuding minor barons. Hig Toduhr is bellow and off to the side of Genera. Genera was also once the open sky portion of Hig Toduhr until it was conquered by the Human empire. Barbarian tribes to the north, wild elves to the south, impassable mountains to the west and pirate kingdoms in the seas to the east.
