Rise of the Thrall Lord
The village of Bardons Gap is home to two hundred hardy souls. The farms are meager and the grazing poor. The primary interest that keeps the folks in Bardons Gap from picking up and leaving is prospecting for crystals in the nearby hills. Although infrequent, the finds are occasionally spectacular with the finders able to retire in style to wealthy cities like Orllon or Dunwynn.
Traditionally the village was ruled by an elder and allied with the Barony Ravenford, but recently the town ‘voted’ to become part of the Duchy of Dunwynn and have a Dunwynn appointed Knight Protector and Magisterial Arbitrator to run the town. Why Dunwynn would be interested in Bardons Gap is a mystery to the residents, but it certainly makes the Baron of Ravenford nervous.
