Dark Before Dawn
Deepdale Village resides within the Darkdale woods (unsurprisingly). The village itself grew around a small lumber mill and the barracks of the lumberjacks who work there. The lumberjack’s families moved in with them and travelers began to stop there as they passed through the Darkdale woods. This caused the outpost to develop into a full fledged village with an inn (the Rusty Hatchet), a general store (Grigor’s Shop), a blacksmith, and some subsistence farming in the surrounding cleared land.
Deepdale does not have much to offer except for the most basic of supplies, a warm bed, and friendly conversation, but it’s residents are able to make ends meet largely due to the once a month shipments of lumber that they export to the surrounding area.
The mayor of Deepdale is a man named Arthur Woodcutter.
