Path of the Pernicious
This market town only exists because of Balentyne. It is the market that provides the food for the soldiers, the neighborhood that contains the officer’s houses, and the tavern that serves the soldiers on their nights off. Without the Watchtower, there would be no use for this little plot of land right on the edge of civilization.
But because the Watchtower does exist, so does Aldencross. And what a thriving little town it is. Fully equipped with an inn, blacksmith, alchemist, scroll master, church and general store, this town has everything that could be needed for the commoner. A common stop for traders, hunters and adventurers up into the north, the market town brings in far more business than a town its side should. This is reflected in the market every second week that boasts a wide selection of all sorts of goods.
