Everrain

Postby David » Mon Aug 26, 2013 11:35 pm

A town that has withstood many tests, Everrain has endured since before the empire and remains even after it slid into chaos. Its local population consists largely of earth-bound and horned ponies, though other races occasionally settle down in the sleepy town. One such, a dwarven family by the name of Roughbeard, has served as the mayor's right hand man and deputy of the town for many centuries. The town has surprisingly good education for its population, sporting several small schools for a variety of subjects.
Nestled beneath the town, brooding in caverns unknown to most, are ancient ruins that predate the settlement. Those few who know of it wonder if it may even predate ponykind all together. The ruins are usually not an issue, for good or ill, for the people, but when someone goes missing, or a monster seems to slip past the guard, the local curse is invoked, 'The earth took them'.
On the West side of the town, an old sanitarium rests atop one of the entrances to the caverns. Was it built there once to explore the tunnels? Was the original inhabitant driven mad by what lurks beneath? None could say for certain, but the sanitarium does its job well. Restful Oak is its name, and its doors are open for those whose minds are in need of care.

Oooh, lovely little look up at the words at the mention of that house of bedlam!

Something about those that really gets the chill going when approached right.

Should have replied sooner, but it's looking pretty good.

Also, in response to Strat, it's not quite supposed to be a bedlam house... that said, there's nothing preventing a DM from having there be a lot of "out there" inmates, or having one of the wings being haunted...

There were a surprising number of towns that were sporting insanity and/or madness. People just can't accept happy candy colored ponies it seems.

Hey, when a beloved leader is dead and an empire is at civil war, Madness and Chaos takes the reign. :crazy:

Besides, how could anyone possibly top Cities like Prisma?
