Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #163

Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #163 

June 12th, 2023 

  • Number: 163 

  • NameGuild Mayors of the City-State of Carasta: Town of Arrowwick 

  • Location: Coastal highway 2 days travel south and west of Carasta 

  • Population (approx.): 1,500 

  • Brief: The Guilds of Aenwyld can be roughly divided into two categories; the Artisans, those who make things and the Services, those who do things. Naturally some Guilds bridge the divide as it were, both making and serving. The town of Arrowwick is home to a fair number of high-quality Artisan Guild members, some of an unusual nature. This has even attracted the attention of the County of Noldune who’ve dispatched a diplomat, Roysa, to enable trade of their wares.  Despite being a haven for artisans, Arrowwick’s Mayor, Yu Rajani Ailbe, is a master of the Merchant’s Guild, popular (and hence electable) given their skill in finding markets (such as Noldrune) for the wares of Arrowwick. 

  • Geography: Arrowwick is 2 day’s travel south and west of Carasta (#162) and two days south of Spiritminster. The town was built several miles inland from the coast, along the north edge of unnamed woods surrounding Woodland Path (#98), hence has no harbor but some fisherfolk live along the coast nearby. The town has some unusual businesses such as a Zoo (Bears, Hippogriffs and Slimes, Oh May!) with a menagerie of the wild and strange. Mayor Ailbe is somewhat concerned about the activity between the town and Spiritminster at the The AEther Wheel (#95) and has dispatched both observers to the site and sent letters of concern to the Magician’s Guild in Carasta. 

  • Notable artisans of Arrowwick include: 

  • Zelphar Aero, glassblower, of The Twinkling Glass, of comparable skill to Clearview Glassworks (#39)

  • Gelen Dannet, alchemist, of the Gorgeous Elixir

  • Jacobina Favlan, herbalist, of Ida Gawen’s Invisible Pot

  • Robard Hanequin, beekeeper, of Bee Good & Farm Friendly

  • Muriel Hubelot, weaponsmith, of the Eagle Star Weapon Smithy 

  • Otibera Magmabraids, a dryfit cooper, of Dapper Hammer Cooperage

  • Warin Simond, an engineer in the employ of Mayor Ailbe working on the town’s dilapidated keep

  • Benedict Tam, a brewer, of Breaking Brews  

  • Malyn Tam, furrier and clothier, of the Wild Animal Furrier
