DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE Background Lore The place where two major merchant roads intersect is often the birthplace of a small settlement or sometimes even a town.

Since then, Oolin’s treatments have solved a lot of people’s problems and now the shop’s popularity is soaring. The apothecary shop is located outside of town near the farmlands. It is a two-story building with a balcony above the main entrance. An irregular stone path…
