The recent village of Corfeler is a quiet, homely place from the outside view, full of a hard-working, industrious population. Although they are taciturn with strangers, they are helpful and generous with their time and efforts.
One thing that must be noted is that apparently, monster raids are a frequent occurrence. Many of the citizens of Corfeler are scarred or maimed in some way due to the sometimes horrific attacks. That being said, both the Mayor and the Sage of Corfeler protect their town well; the militia has been observed to be effective and determined in the protection of their town, even going on to fight with severe wounds. They are equally protective of visitors, who they insist stay inside protected areas during attacks.
In addition, there is a handsome reward for adventuring parties seeking quests; visitors to the mayor or sage are always welcome and they are quick to give necessary and detailed information about the threats the town faces, as well as posting rewards. For the impatient, an up-to-date list with pertinent facts is kept in the clerk's office; a copy can be made swiftly.
A Village and some Problems is system-neutral; however, basic D20 and Storyteller statistics have been provided for important NPCs for convenience.
GM's note: It's under 'Dark Fantasy' for a reason.
