The Sand Canal
The Sand Canal is a joint project by Aldingstone and Jacinta. The project plans to extend and broaden the small river Klemen Run, wide and deep enough for ships to sail all the way to Jacinta. Dwarven earth movers from Dramek started digging about ten years ago. The project was proposed by Sulin and Jacinta Sheik, Raamiz al-Hamed. While the plan will bolster both economies, bring irrigation to barren lands, create food and jobs for thousands, it’s heavily resisted against by the wealthy merchant families of Aldingstone. They believe they stand to lose large shares of the shipping market to Jacinta upstarts and wish to put an end to the whole plan to maintain dominance.
