The Hamlet of Talzin
The Hamlet of Talzin is a moderately sized village with an approximate population of 500 people. There are taverns and smiths, a few inns and all the trappings one would usually expect to find in such a village. A small keep stands on the edge of the village, from which the professional guards operate. 30 full time guards are employed as well as one captain, though the militia can be raised to bring the number of men-at-arms to 100.
A druid has set up a grove on the outskirts of town, though not within the black forest proper and a small church to Erastil has been constructed near to the grove.
As of late villagers have been filtering out and there have been rumors of a malevolent presence from deep within the forest, somehow connected to the mansion of the former Knight-protector of the area.
