Halton

A trading outpost in the middle of the eastern side of Taern, has attracted non-adventuring types by way of artists, musicians, poets, and other liberally thinking types ever since Willy Clark Griswald settled here.


History

Once the famed flutist Willy Clark Griswald made Halton his home, the town grew from simple trading post to become a major force in the formation of the arts movement across Taern. And upon his death, Halton has become more and more a place of the arts, with Willy as the prime example that one did not have to be a soldier to become a hero across the land.

Lately Halton has found itself torn between Griswaldians who have made Gribale (home to The Willy Clark Griswald Memorial Gazebo, site of his last performance) and Buildar (rumored finding of Willy's flute at this site) more popular attractions for Willy fans, and as such Halton's economy is in questionable state.

Whether or not Halton will go back to trade as its main source of income remains to be seen.


Residents

Arsissa Lacuna - The leader of Halton in a completely unofficial capacity, as Halton has no government in the classic sense. Still the citizens of the town have grown comfortable with this popular performer speaking on their behalf. Known to be the embodiment Halton, the former lover of Willy Clark Griswald is open to all cultures and races. Arsissa was the only reason that The Circus of Blood came to town, after months of negotiating with the seclusive Vampire Clan of Stabak. Unfortunately an assassin attempted to incite a riot during the vampire performance and Arsissa was mortally wounded. Ironically it was only through the vampire presence that Arsissa was able to be saved… by accepting the curse of vampirism. Still, the town of Halton welcomed Lacuna back with open arms, and she continues to show the world that "the spirit of unity that Willy was known for lives on in Halton".
