The War for Carcerem
Arkenfield is a small town, with close connections to the local city of Gawinnsburrough. It is build on top of a frozen lake. With wooden pillars and foundations holding up the wooden buildens and the walkways and platforms that connect them. This wood is harvested in large amounts from a forest just north of the village.
Just to the western side of the village is a small mountain range which is an offshoot of the much larger Yris Stronghold mountains. At the bottom of the mountains is a small river, which connects Arkenfields lake with Gawinnsburrough, and despite been mostly frozen provides a valuable source of food thanks to ice fishing.
Thanks to their close connections to a nearby city Arkenfield manages to be largely self sufficient despite their rather extreme location and lack of natural resources. Trading what they can with the city for what they can not obtain themselves. A mutually beneficial relationship that allows this village to survive in a place where no village should be able to.
