- "It’s not so bad when yer climbing up. It’s the getting stuck bit I don’t much like."
- —Anonymous Chimneysweep[1a]
The winters in Wissenland are especially brutal, to say nothing of the demands of the forges, so Nuln makes extensive use of charcoal brought down from Kemperbad and Grissenwald. Heavy use clogs chimneys with soot, resulting in an increased demand for chimneysweeps. A good many of these workers are children, but many are Halflings and particularly thin men. Working on the rooftops, they scrub out the chimneys to clear blockages—usually soot, but sometimes other, far stranger things.[2a]
