Goldendale (Thorp): 40gp limit; Assets 140gp; Population 70; Isolated (human 99%)
A very small settlement in Liffe.
This small village is little more than a rest-stop between Claveria and Moondale: a
farming community close enough to the road to earn extra coin offering refreshment at the Gathering House. A smithy and general store sell to travelers looking for cheap supplies and quick repairs. Goldendale receives mention in this report for being but a short ride from Claveria. It is an excellent place to avoid the inflated costs of the capital. The thorp itself is a collection of homes and barns, along with the three aforementioned businesses and a recently abandoned temple. The temple is dedicated to the Harvest Gods: the many deities of plants, harvests and farmers. It is still in serviceable condition, and could easily be restored if the townsfolk can find themselves a new priest. The fields around the town struggle as most of Liffe’s farms do, but I saw signs that this year’s harvest will be plentiful.
Goldendale is situated far enough off the coast to avoid much of the wind while still benefiting from the rain. However, the thorp is still suffers regular cloud cover, so it is a mystery how the crops receive enough light to grow.
