Payon

payon.jpg

Payon is an immense village built on the edge of a mountain. The city is safe from outside invaders with the blessing of being surrounded by forests and cliff sides. Their unique architecture reflects the use of wood only available in their surrounding forests.

The Archer Village and the old Ranger's Guild are in the vicinity, and there is word going around that monster forms of tigers and nine-tailed foxes appear in the forest and caves. The Ranger's Guild has since relocated to the town of Hugel for unknown reasons. (Their previous building is now up for auction.)

Geography

Payon is located on the mountain next to the ocean. Thick forests border the village on one side while steep cliffs overlooking a raging river border the other. Bridges of brick and stone span across the chasm between Payon and the land across the river. Not only do the bridges provide a means of travel to other towns, they also serve as defence mechanisms with turrets lining the walls.

Background

The lord of the village is seen and respected as the leader. Any blood offspring that the lord and his wife conceives has the opportunity to inherit the lordship and the village if the gods approvve, regardless if the offspring is male or female.

History

Sarah Irine lead an attack upon Payon in order to exact revenge on the village. During her attack, the great dragon Nidhoggr was summoned and destroyed the town. Some time later, Payon was rebuilt and a new village leader was appointed. The discovery of the Payon Cave led to a terrible invasion of undead upon new Payon. The Archer Association was formed to defend against the undead and the small Archer Village was constructed in order to stem the flow of undead going into the main village.
