She came out of the north ten years ago, and has been the head of the militia and town guard for the last 8 years. She sits on the town council. She has three full time deputies and eight part time militia. Deputy Galen has been there longer then Deadra and had a bit of a chip on his shoulder. Deputy Kip is just a kid getting his own training. Deputy Davros is a Dwarven adventurer who is retired but helps out. The town blacksmith is Valen the elf who is second generation in this town (saying a lot for elven generations) his minor magic mixed with being one of the best trained smiths in the world makes him a unique addition to the town.

It is known that he had a family in another town that grew too big, his wife and three children didn’t survive the raids the Hobgoblin forces made.

Some of them are even for sale. The walled part of the city is 4 roads in a basic # pattern. The wagons and tents of the Ravana family are just outside the east wall.

The long day- The first day of summer is a large celebration, with a ritual hunt and games like capture the flag and all the people set up small tents and sell food and wears. It is a fun day of frolicking…
The long night- The first day of winter is also a large celebration, one meant to hold back the night. Legends tell of dark riders and ghosts walking the world. Most people gather with family and friends around the fire. The true meaning of the celebration is to eat the foods that are starting to go bad, and have lasted half way through.
Harvest day- Just at the beginning of fall, the night that everyone finishes the harvest there is a bondfire lite in the pit by lighting tree park and everyone drinks cider and prepares for the cold coming.
Thanksgiving- just at the begiing of spring is the day everyone gives thanks for making it through another winter.
