Making a location is really easy. The trick is to make it vivid and focus on what matters to the game. By keeping the details vague and writing down only what the players can discover everything comes together really fast. Nondescript goon stats can plug into any NPC should combat become necessary, no need to worry about it just yet.>Name>Occupation>Power base>Allies>Enemies>ConflictPopulate this small town with NPCs.

This little burg we've made needs a name.
>>48037150JustainasburgA quaint little community in a growing town. Or could be the name of the town itself idk.
>>48037150I propose the name ReddonNamed after Arhor Reddon who founded it 200 years prior as an entry point to the minesThere's a statue of him in the town square, a tall, burly man with an impressive moustache, iron pick in one hand and oil lantern in the other
>>48037150Fordhurst, Woodwick, Hortealing (after the founder, Aethelwud Horteal), Forestead
>>48037223>Reddon founded the townYou believe that meme-tier history don't you? Must have listened to one of Oughtnot's ramblings again...
>>48037277How could he not have? His name's right on the plaque in the middle of town!>>48036436Nah, the mine isn't part of the forest. He might decide to steal your loot if you leave at night though
>>48037223I like that. Here is a complementary drawing of the statue I made after 12 hours of MS paint.Though I still think that Justainasburg should be a street or section at least.
>>48037311About the mine, I should've been specific about where at. I was referencing a mine that has been abandoned and reclaimed by nature (sort of like your domain).Fuck I'm gonna draw a map of this place later if I have the time.
>>48037336Of course, the mine has long since been run dryHowever, the town prospers as the entrance into the Golem's Pass, a main trading route through the nearby mountain range
>>48037385Any monsters, bandits, or general ne'er-do-wells taking up residence in the mine?
>>48037411At twilight one can sometimes hear shouts coming from that area, however they stop whenever the sun goes below the mountains
>>48037385Welp, in that case, time to go looting! The landlady's been bitching about the rent money and quite frankly, I'm too delicate and prudish to be some cunt's rent boy.
>>48037411You know it, I can't go near there to get the clay for my pots. I have to cross the river and deal with that troll who stands guard there all day

>>48037858Who's the mother?
>>48037824Ah, my fine wife. So glad you came back early for once... how was your mushroom foraging? Find any big ones like last time? I'm sure with Arhor as your guide you'd fine a lot
>>48037872Died in childbirth, Oughtnot used to be fairly rich before drinking it all way in despair.
>>48037896Arhor's been dead for 150 years, my friend. Perhaps you need to lay off those mushrooms?
>>48037896Oh God, this a Dale Gribble situation isn't it? Fuck I'm dying.
>>48037896Oh dear Chiral. You wouldn't believe the size of mushrooms in the forest.
>>48037909*Arbor, perhaps I should...>>48037917Never heard of Dale... there is a guy named Rusty Shackleford that I bumped into the other day after crossing and Poltick's bridge.>>48037920You don't say...
>>48037869Noble, eh? Better make a note of this.
>>48037950Also, anyone notice how invested my son is in religion? It's almost as if he's got holy blood running through his veins... wonder who he got it from though?
>>48037869Evening, Joseph. It's Garn.
>>48038022Gee I wonder... Anyway, does anyone know how much this shit is worth? Looks like it's made of gold.
>>48038092It looks like some kind of idol.
>>48038092If it wasn't missing a sapphire, it would fetch a large price on the black marketOf course, it still would, being a golden idol, but the lack of the sapphire hurts the resale value a little...
>>48038092Ain't an idol for any religion i've ever seen.
>>48038092The priest might have fathered a kid... geez, glad my wife is so dang gorgeous. She'd never stoop so low as to lay with the bishop. Just confession every other day, like a good pious woman.That idol looks really cool. Maybe you'd be willing to trade it to me for a few of my finer vases. >>48038125 has a good point, that missing sapphire does hurt the value
>>48038084Oh, it's you. Did your Uncle send you to fetch his monthly tobacco shipment?
>>48038147You sure you want to take that idol in to your house? From what I've heard, pagan idols are usually cursed.
>>48038118>>48038138I know it's an idol, I sto- erm saw it in a bin outside of the church in town.>>48038125You could be right, I noticed a space where a gem would fit, I could probably just throw another gem in and call it abstract. That seems to fetch a high price on the market.>>48038147Yeah, your wife is pretty hot. And I could do with a few vases, does your wife deliver?
>>48038162Keep makin' cracks about my uncle and I might just walk away. I'm already angry with you making a house call. Right now, some idiot's probably stepping on a rusty nail, and I can't do a thing. So, what needs surgering?
>>48038163Then you would have already felt the effects of that curse, no?
>>48038197You never know. Sorcery is insidious.
>>48038171She does actually! Once she gets back from Arhor's little lumberjack meeting I can send her right away.
>>48038215Everyone should probably start signing posts with character name and occupation of who they are playing
>>48038224It would be nice not to have to jam your name into the begining of every post.
>>48038224>tells us to do something>does not do it himselfYou must be Oughtnot- Chiral, Potter with the hottest wife in town, so be jelly
>>48038193Over in the courtyard. Some fool of a lad had a wagon fall on him. Oh, and the pay for your work for our mutual "wooden" friend is beneath the mossy flagstone outside.
>>48038224We really should. Also anyone know anything about that artifact I found in the mines a while ago?
