Mar 17th, 2023
Name: Anum Taag Mirror at Foothills Market
Location: North border of Anum Taag (#37) directly south of Belladorn (#1)
Population (approx.): 80 (staff) and 450 (local settlement)
Brief: There are rare instances when the NSS wishes potential adversaries to know that the NSS, and by extension Noldrune itself, is keeping on them. Those offices are public presentations and have been nicknamed “mirrors” instead of “blinds.” The Elves and other inhabitants of Anum Taag, due to their distant and some may say aloof nature, have been deemed a potential adversary thus Baron Claid instructed the NSS to establish a mirror in Foothills Market. The mirror’s staff includes foresters and rangers assigned to carefully patrol around Anum Taag but never within the Elven lands.
Geography: Foothills Market is a small village on the north slopes of the Tuton Maug range almost directly south of Belladorn. It is one of the few settlements to have established a relationship with the Elves of Anum Taag. Farmers from the fields to the north bring grain and animal produce to the fields outside of town on market days, trading with the Elves for crafts and forest produce such as nuts, herbs and fruit. The Mirror is a three-story residence with signs reading Embassy of the City-State of Noldrune , the local spymaster doubling as the “ambassador” to Anum Taag.
