Merenranta – woodworker and fishermen village

Merenranta is  a little village of a dozen small huts and a small port. Thanks to the profitable timber trade, the viallge is prospering, and attracts a lot of colonists from the old world. It thus suffers from being packed and lawless. Being situated in a marsh and confined by thick woods doesn’t help the enlargment of the village either.

The main port to get to Merenranta is situated in Elesett a booming town in the old world, controlled by a powerful family of noblemice. At the moment the nobles are engaged with affairs in the old world, but if an opportunity for profit arises the situation will change rapidly.
