Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #116
April 26th, 2023
Location: Several miles north of the Airontir Copa, northwest of Airontir Taun
Population (approx.): 780
Brief: Elfmeet appears to be a typical small town of Ceannar, sitting at the edge of dense forested hills. But it is unique in that Elfmeet serves as the gateway between Ceannar and the Elven “County” of Airontir Taun (#49). The village plays host to a Baronial ambassador, who serves as a gatekeeper for those who would do business with the Elves. She also commands a small detachment of Ceannar’s Rangers, who patrol outside the borders of the County to prevent intrusion upon Elven lands. The City-State currently takes a very “hands off” approach to business and diplomacy, letting the Elves initiate any communication or interchange, for prior mistakes have led to several rather bloody incidents not long forgotten by the long-lived Kin.
Geography: Elfmeet sits in the foothills of the southern Flattop Hills, a couple of miles north of the Airontir Copa bay. The ambassador’s manor sits at the east end of town, near the unmarked border with Airontir Taun. Elfmeet has its own mayor, elected by local elders, but he tends to rely on the ambassador’s extensive political experience (sometimes to her annoyance). The Peoples’ Hall is the center of town, surrounded by two Inns, several shops and Guild offices for businessfolk with ongoing interactions with the Elves. Homes and farms dot the hillsides between the trees and spread out on to the plains to the west on either side of a road leading to the main southern highway between Overlook (#8) to the northeast and Pearl City (#9) to the west.
