Gifts of the Emperor
As i need these written for next game and ok if players see here is the heroes reward from the Prince-Commander of the expeditionary forces on the island.
They are mid 4th lv, and have basically established a forsaken area of the farmable land into a pocket branch of the Lawful empire that every body else is here to get away from. Kraken cove was the last obsatcle and the Barron of Schädel Port has taken two other sites in a rapid land grab blocking action for influence.
One a shanty town of rich hunters here for the unicorn hunting at wolf head lodge. It has become fashionable to leave ladies and children and unneeded retainers in the log walled village while men stay at hunting lodges doing mens secret business. A shanty holiday town for rich and merchant classes has sprung up and is growing fast. An interest in elvish trinkets has begun. Elfland is just beyond the unicorn run and the king of elfland has outlawed humans here.
The other a grog stained station to take the vice and awful travelers away from the marsh village which has been converted to good since the reptile cult were killed by party. The Barron is experimenting with different types of slaves for farming including using hobgoblins. Yeomen surrounding the city dont like this place but would never farm here so tolerate the project. Its goods are cheap and inferior in every way.
The Emperor has a militarized force of 450 men who have built a fort with 320 refugees to be official townsfolk. Goblin Mountain was to be named emperors mountain but the Dwarves who live inside and trade with the castle objected and said it should be dwarf mountain so the old name has stuck.
Broken ground with new refugees near greenwood village. Including indentured work gang form Kraken cove survivors, banished from sight of the sea again. Hopolite farmer folk run the show here and are strict lawmakers.
Rumours that the goblins will return.
That the White Lady, evil usurper sorceress who wasted 10 years of her life thanks to party meddling is still loose.
The cult master of the fish cult whos clan have been forced inland is loose too.
One rumour all these former monster controlling area worked for barron to keep local order but that is just silly.
