The group reaches the town of Saint Etienne. The town, ringed by a low wall, is home to the many workers from the local coal mine. The center of town has shops and stores that cater to the local people and has two inns where travelers on the Queen’s Road may find stables, food and a place to rest. The center area is ringed by a residential area.
