A small town far to the east of New Canterton, run by Mayor Plumblin. There is no form of currency used in town, as the trade is largely that of a barter or honor system. The town is known to be haven for sellswords and retired sellswords who only wish to drown themselves in booze, spending the remainder of their years behind what the mayor proposes is in impenetrable barrier wall. The buildings are frail, though, and once the mayor's office wobbled in its support and leaned over so far it nearly killed him. Brandsford became Rancid Mahoney's longest place of residence after New Canterton, and he only left when he was given the opportunity to make any actual real money to fill his pockets and further fuel his love of the bottle.
A mining facility run by Gunther Ostrander in the wasteland of the american northwest. Encircled by an impenetrable wall of stone, aside from a single entrance carved out and filled in with a massive gate, there is a large, wide field cut through the middle by a single narrow path. And to the north of the main facility lies a quarry, to the east a small village where New Canterton's populace and workers reside.
In the years before the Tuskatawa War, New Canterton was run by Christopher Carl Boothe, a man who was once friends with Gunther P. Ostrander, but was found dead one night, the means of which were deduced to having been killed by some animal. Gunther soon after took up control of the facility and began laying plans to rewrite the business plan in order to meet his goals.
New Canterton is home to many people who are blissfully unaware to Gunther Ostrander's true nature, many of whom may have an inkling but refuse to do anything about it or care at all, as in doing so, such actions may taint their relaxed, secure way of life.
A mountain of myth to those who have heard of the place, Blackheart Mountain does actually exist, nestled deep within a snow-capped mountain range, and is home to the Tuskatawa Tribe. Within the mountain, the blackvein mineral is mined and processed, where it is then utilized when needed by the tribesmen, but only at Chief Tenskatawa's approval. The mountain sits at the edge of a large lake, and on the other side of this lake is where the village is built. The main method of travel to the Mountain, that is, the safest, is by canoe, by crossing the lake from one dock at the edge of the village, to the shores of the Mountain.
Consisting of three ports, The Throat at Galveston, Texas, Monterey Hold in Cozumel Straits, and Morro Castle at Woodstar City, "The Triangle" is controlled and overseen by Empress Val Remo. It was founded by Guiseppe Remo, Val's grandfather, and has been ruled by his descendants for many years. The Triangle is the primary trade route for "The Crowned Bloodwaters" and the mainland to the north and northeast. It is commonly thought by "better minds" that whoever controls the Woodstar Triangle can by extension control the known world.
Sometimes refers to the body of water connecting all three arms of the Woodstar Triangle, "The Crowned Bloodwaters" is an area of the sea few sailors voluntarily pass through unless on paid demand, trade, or secret business. It is a common hunting ground for The Mantle of Fire.
Constructed by Frank and Plath Delmont when they were young, the ship eventually gained infamy status among the Remo's, particularly the Empress, and became feared among pirates and respected by sailors and tradesmen alike.
