Mellikho Stoneworks

A sign set on 2 posts in a scrap of weedy lawn out front of this small house reads “Mellikho Stoneworks.” The quarry pit begins just behind the house, which serves as the business office and the home of the quarry owner, Albaeri Mellikho. Mellikho herself oversees the work in the quarry, cajoling and cursing the sweating stonecutters here.

When orders for her stone are backed up, Mellikho usually has her stonecutters work a night shift by torchlight. Over the last month or two, they’ve been scared off by mysterious dark-robed figures wearing stone masks, who watch them from the shadows.
