 +====== River Crown ======
 +River Crown was established in early 1330 near the headwaters of the Western Cold River, Janis Duchy, [[gaeleth:​places:​Rakore]]. ​ The village has about 150 people, and whom were lead there by [[gaeleth:​figures:​Sir Tyrne le Boeuf]], local lord to the regional baron. ​ Sir Tyrne hoped one day to turn River Crown into a trade city, working the nearby pass through the mountains and funneling in foodstuffs and goods from the Janis Plains. ​ Sir Tyrne died in the winter of 1330 defending the town against an undead incursion. ​ After that time, Baron Wilhelm Dellis moved to his largest village and made it the capital of his barony.
 +The village is mainly made of sod, with buildings dug into the earth part way, and roofs also of sod over wooden frames. ​ Stone was used in the construction of the outer building walls and hearths. ​ Several buildings in town are taller the others, the largest being the village'​s collective barn and silo.  The other taller buildings are the temple, and smithy, and the mill.
 +The temple, made more of stone than sod and with a real wooden roof, is dedicated to the local pantheon of [[gaeleth:​divinities:​Whalin]],​ [[gaeleth:​divinities:​Yatindar]],​ [[gaeleth:​divinities:​Mikindim]],​ and [[gaeleth:​divinities:​Arpelos]]. ​ It is lead by a priestess of [[gaeleth:​divinities:​Rahne]] named Fe'a Nilithira, who also helps train the town's militia and the many kobolds there while simultaneously trying not to shove the teachings of Rahne down the village'​s collective throat.
 +The mill sits on the north side of the town, using a horizontal spinning windmill to grind the grain, with hookups for cattle to drive the mill on those rare days on the plains when the wind does not move.  The miller'​s home, next to the mill, is longer and larger than most -- as he has two fireplaces and hosts guests, his home serving as the local tavern. ​ Donald the Miller is a middle-aged man with a paunch and a red-nose from being into his own ale a bit too often, but he does a good job of milling and never cheats his clients (until they'​re as drunk as he).
 +The town hosts [[gaeleth:​mercantile:​Maleah'​s Mercantile]],​ lead by the Clan of Caerne. ​ The mercantile uses coyote-mounted kobolds to ferry messages and small luxury goods all over Rakore. ​ Some 150 kobolds work for the mercantile, and more join every season. ​ Only a hundred of the kobolds can be found in town at any one time, and they live in just two one-room houses with a warren of tunnels connecting the two houses. ​ The townsfolk respect the kobolds, who are policed by the Clan of Caerne rather fiercely, yet fairly.
