Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #134
May 14th, 2023
Name: Feast or Folly
Location: Western Wastelands on outskirts of Natroscha.
Population (approx.): 350
Brief: After the population of Natroscha scattered in the face of the destructive appearance of Hedron Assembly (#134), locals returned to the suburbs of the ruined city. Through sometimes deadly trial and error, scavengers and scroungers discovered there was a distance, from the center of Natroscha, beyond which the Hedrons would not immediately awaken, seek and destroy. Flags, banners and swaths of bright paint and chalk mark the edge of a safe zone. On the northwest side of this zone, a small village, nicknamed “Feast or Folly” was founded by locals to support foolish explorers with gear and supplies and eagerly wager on their success or failure. Recently an enterprising group of Dwarves with magical capabilities have had some success digging a tunnel underneath the city and breaching into cellars and vaults.
Geography: Feast or Folly is a small village on the northwest side of the Natroscha safe zone. It exists mainly to supply those headed into the ruins and celebrate those who survive and return. The village features a large multi-story Inn, a tenement for long-term residents, a gambling hall, two merchants, a pawnshop (dealing in antiquities, tools and minor magics), a tinker and a toolsmith. Feast or Folly is ruled by a council of the property owners of the village and a self-appointed representative of the local farms and ranches that supply most of the food to the inhabitants.
