Keen is a rustic, riverside settlement built on ruins left over from the first Elven Imperium. It stands in the shadow of the Blue Shale mountains, about 60 miles west of Haimor. Known for it’s lumber trade, apple orchards, and breweries, Keen has a population of roughly 700 people (Mostly humans with a handful of ale-swilling dwarves and some halfling riverfolk). The town mayor, Belor Bran, is a short, kind man with a young son and a lovely wife, He was appointed to his post by a council consisting of members of the Loggers’ Consortium.
Nothing unusual or of great consequence ever happens in Keen. The citizens pay their taxes to the commonwealth of the Vale, and the local festivals throughout the year keep spirits high. It’s a quiet town inhabited by quiet people, unconcerned with what happens “Over the mountains”. The springs and summers are beautiful, warm, and verdant. The falls and winter are typically cold, wet, and foggy.
