The Village of Dharnic



NG Village


Dharnic is a small, closely-knit community located in the far eastern edge of Virlych in Ustalav, located not far from the Amaans border. Settled many years ago by prosperous miners, the village has continued tradition with a small but profitable mining operation that takes ore from the Hungry Mountains; the base of which the village is built alongside. Run by the Hames family (original descendants of the the miners), the village trades mostly in ore and blacksmithing goods with travellers or other communities near the Ustalav/Amaans border. Travellers through the village are not frequent, but common enough to necessitate the need for the likes of a tarvern and general store, and mostly cater for travellers through the Midlands of the country.
