Town of CrestGrath
Town of CrestGrath est. 1002
The town of CrestGrath was established around the Realms Year 1002 by two people, Dagger Arkenstone (then of WhiteCoast) and his foreign friend, Slim of Terra. The town is located in one of the remaining wooded patches in the deep Southern Wastes. CrestGrath has survived the fall of the Nation of WhiteCoast and Dagger Arkenstone, the town's mayor and now of Blackwood, still lives there. Slim also maintains an establishment, Slim's Place, which he had built by Balinor of WhitCoast in the first years of the town's existence.
Dagger of Blackwood, Mayor of CrestGrath
Dagger founded the Town of CrestGrath as a village with his friend Slim. As the then village was part of the Nation of WhiteCoast, Dagger became the town's member as the village's most prominent resident. Although he has since left the town almost completely to carry out the King of Blackwood’s wishes in Mythodea, Dagger still maintains the position of Mayor.
Slim Co. Founder of CrestGrath and Vice Mayor
Slim just woke up one day in the Realms and started wondering. He has no memory of who he was or where he came from. The first person he met in the Realms was a kid who claimed to be a dragon named Dagger. The two became friends and set out traveling together. Dagger was part of a group called WhiteCoast that were settling the lands around where Slim woke. Not interested in joining the nation, Slim decided to work for them on occasion and use them to build a home and start a business.
Slim's first friend in the Realms Dagger was given permission to settle a town by his Lord Galleos Seaelf. Slim, showing an aptitude for business, decided to co. found the town which Dagger named CrestGrath. Once at their new location in the heart of WhiteCoast, Slim and Dagger began to settle their new town. The two hashed out the general layout and started construction on the town. Slim brought in help, a dwarf named Balinor, from one of the more established regions of WhiteCoast to help with some masonry.
Slim's first main project in the city was the construction of "an actual building made of stone" his business and home, Slim's Place. The rest of the town started out as either earthen huts or tents including Dagger's home which is not much better today. Later, as Slim's business started to flourish, Slim funded the construction on the existing wall that surrounds 1/3 of the town. Slim has since left his mercenary work and retired to a life of light merchanting, until now.
Varn of CrestGrath
Varn was found by Dagger of Blackwood in the Southern Wastes of the Realms. The mayor of CrestGrath, Dagger, took Varn when he was still a boy to the only nearby civilized settlement, CrestGrath. There, the librarian of the Library of CrestGrath adopted Varn teaching him to read and write. Varn spent much of his time either working in the library or performing his civic duty on in the town guard. Recently, after Dagger's long absence from the town, Varn chose to travel to Mythodea to serve Dagger in hopes of seeing something more than the small town he grew up in.
Currently, Varn has been made temporary Master of Blackwood House in Drachenbrück, Zweiwasser within the Realm of Roses.
Charles of CrestGrath
Charles was born to a carpenter and a camp follower of The Army of Dragon's Breath. When that army disbanded, Charles's family went with those who followed Galleos Seaelf south to the Southern Wastes. There, Charles's father practiced his trade in the new town of CrestGrath helping to build and later maintain its structures. His mother, however, did not come with as she disappeared with a knight when Dragon's Breath disbanded.
Charles's father raised him and taught him his trade. His father still lives and works in CrestGrath today only now Charles is a fully grown adult with a child of his own. To help maintain his growing family, Charles ventured out into the Realms as an Embassy Guard when the mayor returned asking for support. Currently, Charles is working as an Embassy Guard on Saphire Isle
