Guardians of Stormbow
The nearest village to Stormbow is Gideon’s Keep, about three days’ travel on the main road. Gideon’s Keep is larger than Stormbow, ruled by a council of three elders. Both villages work hard to keep the road between them safe, since Gideon’s Keep depends on Stormbow for its crops, and Stormbow depends on Gideon’s Keep for armor and weapons. The villages hold festivals together twice a year, at planting and at harvest. The occasion is marked by fireworks, dancing, drinking, and an exhibition of fighting skills.
