LastTrueResta’Fin-esd’theStoneRiver and StoneRiver
There are two villages here.
Elves do not live in “villages”. They live in good sized groups in clusters of HomeTrees. They also do not like to live at the borders of the land, as the kingdom’s magic is weakest there and the mundane disturbs them. Yet here it is.
LastTrueResta’Fin-esd’theStoneRiver is a place where only five HomeTrees grow in a cathedral (ring of trees) configuration. Here a lone clan of Elventi and their Elventi Ranger guests live a good bowshot from the edge of Elventi Lands. These Elventi are moderately friendly to Humans and other Non-Elves. They speak outsider tongues and understand their strange ways. However, no non elf can travel past this place without an escort and expect to live. In fact, the Elventi will bring said trespassers back to the Humans for disposal.
The StoneRiver is the paved Kingdom road that ends one Elven Longbow shot from border of the Elventi land. In fact that arrow has now grown into a huge oak (called the Arrow Oak).
Here is a small patio with seats and tables near the Arrow Oak. This has been the site of several ambassadorial meetings and pretty much every celebration in the area.
Stone River is the small human settlement a respectful distance from the Arrow Oak. There is no river anywhere near by. It is called Stone River because it is the Human translation of the Elven words for the end of the road. Stone River is a tiny farming and crafts village with tiny temple. There are several barracks (though only one is in use) for Army forces and Human Rangers that patrol the Humanti side of the lands. There is an inn of moderate quality, that sells human versions of Elven treats, and a two caravan warehouses for the two trading companies that trade with the Elventi.
One would expect a number of Half Elves in the area. If their are, they are from other places. The Border stands firm. Humantis and Elventi are cordial and friendly, they might even celebrate together, but they do not mix. It is one of the unexpected rules of this place.
