Corkirk: Demons of the Mist
Table of Contents
Corkirk is a small village located in the Grimarden forest, it is built around the ruins of an ancient cathedral, all that remains of a prior settlement. The community primarily centers around logging, though a handful of farms fill in the clearing that surrounds the village. Transport of the local goods is primarily by river, the Tamwaer, which flows along the northeastern edge of the settlement coming from the north west and flowing east-southaest. Roads also exist, going along the river as it flows southeast and towards the heartlands, but are not commonly used outside of traveling peddlers.
The village has no specific government per se, though most issues and handled by the elders. Generally there is a split between Ingram and Young Ben. Ingram tends to be a bit more brash, economically minded and runs the lumber operations in town. Young Ben is more cautious, safety minded and runs the local smithy. Though the elder tend to line up behind Young Ben or Ingram, if Mother Gram weighs in on a matter most will respect her opinion over all others.
