Market District In Ankerhill

Ankerhill is a town located in The Maiden's Forest, in the country of Veron. It is governed by Sir Henry Boulforg, who has inherited the town after the untimely death of his older brother, William. It is well known for being the main market hub in the forest.

Appearance and Atmosphere Edit

When you approach Ankerhill, you notice it being surrounded by large, but unfinished walls. So there is a large gap in wall in the side of the town. As you enter you will see a big town that seems to go up hill, on the flat ground near the bottom of the town is a large market area, and as you go up the hill you will get closer to the lords great hall and living area.

The town seems to be very dark and depressing to an outsider. Although it isn't as bad as it used to be with the Blue Wolves terrorising the towns people and doing what they want.

History Edit

415 BR - The First Settlers Edit

Ankerhill was formed as a settlement for the Anker tribe, because they wanted the perfect area to continue their life. They built it on a hill overlooking the forest so they would be able to see anything that comes their way. As the years went on, more tribes moved into their settlement, and the bigger Ankerhill became.

The Ankers then bowed to The First King Of The Forest, Gendyr Kywnn, who claimed the entire forest for himself.
