No New Posts Desperation - 1 Viewing

The town of Desperation has sprung up almost overnight as hoards of people have flocked to the mountains to fulfill their dreams by finding gold. Any number of small businesses have cropped up to service the prospectors and townspeople. Blacksmiths, wagoners, a general store, a bakery, livestock sales and more can be found in the hastily built town.

No New Posts The Haunted Mines

Many years ago someone mined iron ore and silver near the town of Desperation, but the mines were abandoned when the ore ran out. Some say the mines are haunted by the workers who perished in a collapse. No one knows for sure if they are haunted or cursed, but there are many tales of strange things that happen in the mines.

No New Posts The Dark Market

This is the merchant area where illicit or illegal transactions take place. It is the seedy side of Desperation, and only those in-the-know can find their way to shop here. There are tales of strange and exotic goods being sold on the Dark Market. Beware, however, for there are also tales of people disappearing or even being killed for a few coins in their pockets.
