Of Kings and Dragons
Lying around and among the foundations of Thornwall Castle is the strange town of Sojourner’s Rest. Visitors to this town must enter via tangled game trails, passing through magical veils that both protect the town and support its unusual architecture—its pair of interlaced streets form a continuous Varisian knot with no entrances or exits save into the castle itself. Where the street passes under or over itself, delicate bridgework and columns seem to support the upper reaches, yet in a most vexing manner the street itself remains impossibly level—it never seems to rise or fall in slope. Every manner of fey make Sojourner’s Rest their home, from rusalkas and nixies to korreds and satyrs, but pixies predominate. The town is full of various fey habitats including gardens of giant flowers, numerous caves, fields, orchards, and waterfalls, all beneath Thornwall Castle but somehow open to the sun and elements as needed. Many inns, restaurants, and shops dot the sides of the street, full of delicious food, drink, and the broadest range of magical items and adventuring gear west of Whitethrone and north of Magnimar.
