Name: Deep Dive on a Settlement of Interest: Village of Forest’s Edge
Location: Eastern edge of the Lolot Forest, east of Berien Manor in County Berien
Population (approx.): 235
Brief: Forest’s Edge is one of the many small villages scattered throughout Lolot Forest, the land of House Berien. Like the others, its origin pre-dates the arrival of the Houses from the north when the region was home to Faerie-aspected Kin (Humans, Elves and Wildfolk of mixed ancestry). Being a border settlement, the inhabitants of Forest’s Edge are tasked by their Countess, Dayntree Claid, to protect the borders, watch for intruders in the forest, and report on any unusual traffic on the road or activity in the plains to the east, the lands of House Ulste.
Geography: Forest’s Edge can be found on the eastern edge of Lolot Forest where the main spur from the central highway enters the woods heading west 30 miles to Berien Manor (#145). The road passes south of the village, itself on a stream that crosses the plains from the Tuton Maug, and eventually passes Berien Manor emptying into Lake Loloto Pogisa.
