Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States
Jan 13th 2023
Name: Missing Settlements
Location: Recent maps say they were on the north coast of Ceannar on Staplefish Bay
Population (approx.): Was 300-500 per Settlement, now no known survivors
Brief: The coasts of Ceannar are home to hundreds of small fishing villages on the waters and farming settlements a day or two’s travel inland. Natural events, as expected, cause towns and villages to either move or be abandoned over the course of time. But recently, two or perhaps three small thorps, along of the cliffs of the north shores of Ceannar, have simply vanished. Travelers report very little debris surrounding where it appears a huge chunk of the stone and earth, hundreds of yards wide, has been scooped away, taking with it the village; buildings, people, animals and all.
Geography: The coast of this region of Ceannar features cliffs running from 50 (30m) to 150 feet (90m) above the waters below. A typical village is usually atop the cliff, insulated from tides and storms, with paths or stairs leading to docks or beached vessels. Where the settlements rested, a vast semi-circular section of cliff has vanished. Minimal debris can be seen on the beaches below, leading to many questions about what exactly happened. To date no witnesses have been found and no explanation is forthcoming.
