The Farthest Reaches
A cloud of dust hangs over Hvamm's main street from the bustle of wagons and newly arrived colonists, legs swaying from weeks spent at sea. Vendors at the central market hawk wildly overpriced local produce and strange pelts to the new arrivals. At port the ships unload cargo from the Northern Continents, sometimes passengers, sometimes essentials like food and medicine, other times creature comforts for peoples unused to life outside their relatively small islands – a shipment of local jams and preserves from Valmeir, or perhaps a crate of carved statuettes from the Volun capital of Emain.
People come to Hvamm seeking a new beginning, to escape the social and political moorings of their home continent, to win fortune and fame, and most of all to claim a piece of the vast lands of The Reach. Hvamm will be a new beginning for the players as well as they disembark from the ship that gathered them from their homelands and set out into the Reach.
