Settlements and Sites of the Four City-States #214 

August 2nd, 2023 

  • Number: 214 

  • Name:  Deep Dive on a Settlement of Interest: Village of Forest’s Edge – Part 4

  • Location: Eastern edge of the Lolot Forest, east of Berien Manor in County Berien 

  • Population (approx.): 235 

  • Brief: The people of Lolot Forest have lived in harmony with their environment since Kin first arrived in the region. A number have dedicated themselves to the health and wellbeing of the fauna, both domesticated and wild animals. One or more animal handlers, healers or trainers can be found at each settlement of the forest. Some also wander the deep woods helping any and all they encounter.

    • Petstaer, 48, male Half-Elf, is an animal handler who lives and works in Lolot Forest. He is of average height and build and has a devastating smile he uses to good effect. His hair is charcoal black, and his eyes are hazel. Petstaer carries rope and has a belt with food, herbs, and berries for various animals. His only weapon is a dagger, a gift from his wife, Alysuis, on their wedding day.

    • Petstaer is known as the local veterinarian of Forest’s Edge. He will treat whoever needs help but is most comfortable around animals. He has lived in Lolot Forest around Forest’s Edge for a while and named most of the animals there. Petstaer tries to be present at most of the larger animals' births just in case of any problems. He works well with all the people that live in the forest but doesn't welcome newcomers.

    • Petstaer has two great Danes as pets, Dinos and Smokey. He takes them with him on his walks for protection and because he enjoys their company. Petstaer and Alysuis, 42, Human woman live in a large house on the outskirts of Forest’s Edge. It has stables, animal pens, and cages for when animals need help recovering from various illnesses.

  • Geography:  Petstaer and Alysuis’ home is a short walk south of Forest’s Edge. One of Petstaer’s favorite places is about midway along the path where a large tree fell creating a natural archway over the trail in the ravine below. The ancient trunk has become a trail for local fauna to avoid the traffic and Kin-smell of the path below. Petstaer enjoys watching and document the comings and goings of local animals along the trail.
