Muffin's Crossing (WIP)

The town of Muffins Crossing (or simply Muffins, as its hearthlings often call it) stretches on the foothills near the Megahra lake. Founded by the emigrants from Lodewall itself, it specialized in agriculture, game and timber production until recently, before rich iron deposits were discovered, proving once again the name of Lodestone Mountains is entirely justified.
Constantly threatened by stray goblin raid parties, hearthlings of Muffins Crossing possess a seasoned militia, equipped with armor and weapons skillfully forged from imported iron. Time and again they bribe passing goblin parties with wood and furniture - not because they can’t defend themselves but because they hold onto hope to befriend their less civilized neighbours.
