Kingdom of Grania
The Kingdom of Grania is a moderate sized, respectable Kingdom. While life for the peasants is hard, for those who have skill and talent, like yourself, the Kingdom is prosperous and there is opportunity. Grania enjoys a favorable climate, with mild winters and summers a bit on the hot side at times but not overly so. The Kingdom runs roughly north-south in a strip of land between the Dunbard Forest to the east and the Sea of Lendahl to the west. There was a time when the kingdom was less populated, when traveling north from the port city of Castillion, the capital city, to the port city of Notler meant travelling through open countryside. Not anymore! The arable strip of land between the two port cities is now covered with farms. Even so, much of its wealth lies in these port cities of Castillion and Notler. Indeed, of late, this has caused some concern that pirates might seek to exploit such wealthy targets.

Village of Shalton
The village of Shalton is a remote village several days travel east of the City of Castillion. It lies on the edge of the Dunbard Forest beside one of the best fording spots on the River Casforin.  The once small farming community has blossomed into a large village of perhaps 700 inhabitants thanks to trade and metalwork accompanying the discovery iron ore in the mountains east of the forest.
