Red Larch

Red larch has been an important stop along the trading routes in Breland, named after the Red Larch Trees that were cut down in the hamlet when it was founded. It became a settlement in the first place thanks to a drinkable spring that fed a sizeable pond ideal for watering horses, oxen and pack mules.

Two roads run through the town. East to West is the Long Road. This is a popular trade route from Sharn, through several smaller settlements such as the logging community of Kheldell, and to well known establishments such as the Bargewright Inn. The north south path leads to the quarries in the Black Caps, which are a popular source of marble. As such Red Larch has also been a hub for stonecutters.

Despite the prosperity, this place has been in danger as of late. Monsters have started to appear in greater numbers. Banditry is on the rise and the weather has become more tumultuous and unpredictable. Shepherds in the hills have reported seeing strange figures watching them from the distance in the fields around the town. Quarry workers used to work by torchlight but few even dare to step outside at night. There are even rumours of dark robed figures in stone masks lurking in the darkness beyond the torchlight. The townsfolk fear that there are dangerous times ahead, but no one knows what to do about it.
