Rivervale is a quiet town, hidden well in the valley surrounding a small lake that is the head of a river running through Antonica. The layout of the town is simple, with tunnels burrowed through rock as its entrances and the river running out through a narrow, unpassable gorge. Rivervale itself is separated into the town itself where most people live, the docks, and the farms, where the druids work and the clergy pray.
The Misty Thicket has several huts of more intrepid salespeople trying to reach the crowd of people that pass through this area between Freeport and Qeynos. The area is also rampant with insects, as well as tougher creatures past the wall.
Kithicor Forest itself is much closer to the usual route between the two coasts, and sees more of the urban travellers. It is also much more dangerous. I haven't spent much time there, just passing through on the beat of my drum...
Travelling To and From Rivervale
Rivervale can be accessed from one side through the Kithicor Forest through a narrow, well-hidden tunnel. The other side opens onto the Misty Thicket, where many halflings make their homes. This area is generally a little safer for the traveller, but further afield lies areas best avoided.
The town is very quaint, with holes where the halfings live and do business, as well as larger businesses that seem built to house more of the taller folk, like the local bar. Also, one of the largest and most well-kept inns lies in this green glade, with a warm hearth for everyone who passes its mantle.
The people in Rivervale are very easy to get along with. Most of them like to talk, and will speak with anyone who walks by. Of course, if you are evil or working for the forces of same, don't expect a friendly reception by the town guard.
