Town of Drapuren
Town of Drapuren
One side of the town is the great sea where there is a small dock that brings in many of the commercial items and supplies from the two great cities near by. The town is build close together and feels smaller than it really is. A big part of this is due to the great forests that surround the other side of the city. Past the docks to the south the land rises to a great cliff side where the Noble Julian Murdock lives. His great house is surrounded by a great wall of stone and the road to access his front gate is out of the way and passed by both the Mayor's Manner and the town guards barracks. The actual town is build around a circular road which houses the town market in the center on the south side and most of the major neighborhood to the north. The docks to the east and the scatters homes to the far west house the two major slums. further to the west is a rough dirt road which leads to the west side of the cliffs and the major mining caves.
- Humans: ~2,200
- Half-elves: ~275
- Dwarves: ~135
- Halflings: ~120
Government: Local noble who resides on the hill above the sea and a Mayor who runs the town
Defense: The city is protected by a local town guard lead by an elected official but it is well know he works for Murdock. He is kind and fair and leads his men to keep the peace more than use violence. Their biggest challenge of late has been the growing gang influence which has become something greater than the Captain of the guard can ignore. Total guard: 18 men and women
Commerce: Basic supplies are easily found and come in regularly on both boats and from the near by large cities. In fact the town would be a major hub except it is dwarfed by two major cities who have a much more stable economy.

Captain of the Fortune of Men
Captain Moxus is a serious man who leads his crew with a kind heart but strict protocol. He is quick to laugh but just as quick to reprimand. He is fairly well trained at the cutlass but tends to avoid fights and bloodshed at all costs. His men are his family and he will not risk their lives needlessly.
Captain of the Town Guard
Herald Dumphy just wants to get through the day without having to explain to someone why their money was stolen, why their son got beat up, why they have to pay protection money when the "Gods damned city guard was suppose to do that." Sigh. But no day like that exists for Dumphy. He does his best and wants the best for everyone, but he can't please everyone. To be fair, the mayor and Mr. Murdock are the ones paying min and his men. Neither of them usually ask too much…well until recently. Sigh.
