Hello. Hope this isn't too obvious a question.

My PCs have just come to Marienburg where I intend to run a series of scenarios.

I will of course be making use of Marienburg Sold Down the River and intend to use the series of White Dwarf articles which include Potion Square, a community in the District of the Suiddiock. The material says potion square is on Luydenhoek isle. I was wondering if there was any more details as to exactly where on Luydenhoek it was? Closer to the Orphanage of Blessed Rutha or more towards the Import and Export Exchange for example

If there isn't an exact location it isn't a problem of course and Marienburg is so large it is unreasonable to map out every street but just thought it was strange it isn't noted on any maps consdiering more generic locations like the Pelican's Perch have an exact location so was wondering if I was missing something.

Cheers.

I don't recall Potion Square's location within the Luydenhoek island ever being specified and i can't find anything definitive as i take a look through again now. I think you must know all of this already, but, to be clear, the Luydenhoek is one of the islands in the Suiddock. The Suiddock is located in the centre of Marienburg on the south side of (the main channel of) the River Reik. On a bigger map of the Suiddock there are three bridges on the Luydenhoek. Two of them are named (the Draaienbrug Swing Bridge in the south east of the Luydenhoek and the Niederbrug Bridge in the north east) and neither of them are the Powder Bridge on the Potion Square map, so from that we might deduce that the Powder Bridge is the unnamed bridge in the north west of the Luydenhoek island. However, i don't think that was the intent and i think that the Powder Bridge is located on a much smaller channel somewhere inside the Luydenhoek island.

Thanks, this follows my line of reasoning especially re the bridges. I think the location may have been left intentionally ambiguous.

(Btw the reference to Potion Square being on Luydenhoek is blink and you miss it. It's in italics in the first Potion Square article in White Dwarf and never mentioned again!).
