This settlement was founded as a place to rest and find lodging for those who worked in the mines to the South. They would have to make deliveries up North, and during the winter if they did not have this place to stay, would most likely freeze to death before ever getting to their destination. Over time the settlement grew larger and larger, until eventually a powerful wizard bought property there and had a tower built. The tower is now the defining feature of the town. More recently, with the enslavement of the Catfolk, it has become a place where the slave trade thrives.
