The once quiet seaside town of Karajon has been transformed over the last few years by a major project of the Duke of Dunwynn to breed Hippogriffs. The gently rolling hills surrounding Karajon are now dotted with 120 nesting towers, each of which is occupied by a Sky Knight of Dunwynn with his attendant squires, servants and family living in quickly built houses nearby.
The rapid changes in the area have altered the economy as well as the landscape. The huge sheep herds of Karajon have been dwindling, which has hurt the wool merchants’ seasonal products. The requirement for stone and lumber for the new buildings and raw materials requires more masons and carpenters. And leatherworking exotic saddles has become a growth industry.
After visiting Karajon, the bard Talespinner wrote this song.
