The ramshackle town of Falcon’s Hollow rests perilously close to the infamous Darkmoon Vale forest. The jagged shadow of nearby mountains casts a shroud of gloom on the desperate souls who call this place home. Many are drawn here
to make their fortune cutting a swath of darkwood lumber through the lush forests of the vale. Others journey to these remote fringes to start over, piecing together their shattered lives on the edge of an untouched wilderness far
from the things of man. Still others are lured to Falcon’s Hollow by the promise of great adventure. Peril and splendor await within the depths of the Vale or in the accursed halls of dwarven kings. These dwarven ruins, once a glorious civilization long ago, are now shattered and crumbled to dust.
Jak n’ Napes:
You sit at a small wooden table a few feet from a stone fireplace in a friendly tavern. A warm fire burns bright next to you. Within the hour, you finish the first home cooked meal you’ve had in a week. It is early Fall and with the nights growing cold, you are grateful to have found such a friendly inn to stay. The décor proves that you reside in a true logging community. Wooden beams support the low ceiling, while knotty wood planks line the floor. The shingle outside the main entrance reads, Jak ‘a’ Napes: A Family Inn.
The inn is located next to the town’s stables and offers lodgings and food to the many travelers who pass through Falcon’s Hollow. The owner is a rotund red-faced human named Jak Crimmy. This greying-red haired man is a retired bard who sports an easy smile. Jak’s wife Darla runs the kitchen located in the back of the inn. Her cinnamon-crusted flapjacks are legendary in town. Jacqueline, their only daughter tends to the tables making sure the guests are treated like family. Her long dark hair, freckled nose and welcoming smile draw many young suitors. The Crimmy’s live a simple life, but it is obvious they are a very tight nit family. Jak boasts that one day he will retire and leave the family inn to Jacqueline. “What more can a proud father do than leave his empire to his first born. Right Jac?” He chuckles and winks at Jacqueline.
This is not the only inn within this small logging town, but it is by far the safest and most welcoming.
