A Forlorn Hope
Thurmaster is a walled village of some 100 people. There are a great many abandoned houses, falling into ruin lying outside the rickety wooden walls surrounding the village. These walls were built some 40 years past as defense against the then marauding lizard men of the Shrieken Mire.
Just north of the village, outside the gate, one of the houses is in the process of being restored. This is the “Crows Nest” The base of operations for a local band of adventurers.
Fishing, agriculture, harvesting of marsh reeds and hay, and light forestry on the margins of the blessed wood are the main sources of income here.
