The Dark Lands
The smallest of the three great settlments of the Dark Lands, this town was the most recently established, the first settlers arriving just a year before the Aethric War. The aptly named Fringe stands between the Blackness and Huntsman’s Forrest, one of the few great sources of wood in all the Dark Lands. It is far enough from the Blackness so as not to fear it, while close enough to serve as a jumping point for the fool hardy sorts who want to go into the Blackness to search for Aether.
Furthermore, the logging community has a steady trade with towns that have less access to wood, which makes this House Kornac’s seat of power. In spite of it’s frontier status (or perhaps because of it), the town actually has better public order than Crevice
