The Power of Suffering
Tordnot village is a small settlement south along the main road that leads from the castle to the sea. Its inhabitants number approximately 90. Its location makes it fit as a trader’s stop on the way to sell his goods in the city. A few shops selling traveling and hunting supplies as well as four tavern inns line the road on both sides. Houses here are generally small, made of wood and grey stone.
The main river flows east of the village about 50 metres, and a ‘harbor master’ owns a small dock for fishing and boat traders to stop at. Mountains line the east side of the river and sharply slope up a little ways from the west side, where hunters catch deer and rabbits and fend off infrequent wolf attacks. The air is one of a laid-back but determined lifestyle, and the population is hardworking and poor but mostly happy.
