Alanus's General Store    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

It was a single store that sold a variety of good made by a variety of people. It was such a novel concept that most people will dislike it. "It is just not the way we do things around here", they would say. Yet they still buy things here.

Argus's Cart / a Blue Cart    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Argus is like most of the carter’s in the city. He works out of one of the inns, where they actually prepare the food. (It is loaded into the cart there and kept warm by stoked coals and ash.) The Blue Rose carts are served by a consortium of inns, while a bit more expensive than standard cart food is well worth the price.

Cashmirius's    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Cashmirius’s is one of the finest cafes in the city.  It is does not have a large indoor seating area. The small tables with their crisp creme linens are crowded with stools.  If you sit inside, the host will often sit other people you don’t know at your table.  This is great for meeting new people, but it is tough if you are trying to have a private talk.

Establishments    Locations  (Establishment)   (Any)

Every city, town, or large village will have businesses. Some will be inns, some stores, some people providing a service. They are all places for characters to get what they need, spend money, and a chance for the GM to hook the PCs into a new plotline.  So we are looking for distinct establishments, ready to be pushed in a not-yet-complete place.

Aviansis    Locations  (Area)   (Desert)

The wind blows out of the West. It is warm and gentle. It rolls over the rough terrain. A man is standing, one foot on the soft sandy ground, the other stepping on the ruin of a once great column. He has a hawk upon his outstretched gloved hand. It takes flight.  This is Aviansis. This is the Wings of Sand.

Shaedra    Locations  (City)   (Mountains)

Located near the lush banks of the River Aloma, it is home to many of the most skills trackers and hunters in the region. This modestly sized town has a rather large standing militia due to the fact is it so close to the mountains and in such a hostile area.

Caraguis    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Caraguis is an idylic little village, deep in the wine country. It is like the traveller was walked into a Maxwell Parish picture. It is on what was once a main road, but the newer road takes you to the important places quicker. Yet if you are taking in the beauty of the hills and valley or avoiding people on the main road, you will encounter Caraguis.
