The Eternal Empire
The village of Jainesville lies on the edge of the Empire, nestled between the mountains, hills and the Gloomimg forest. It is a frontier village, built out of the remains of a small town once ruled over by a black-hearted Baron who lorded it over the common miners with an iron fist, and a barbed whip. He met his demise when an adventurer by name of Jaine robbed his treasury, and killed the Baron and his eldest son in the process. As this man they called Jaine fled, he was unaware of a hole in his backpack, which let gold coins trickle out. The miners who still lived in the town took the gold, and prospered; they built a statue to him, and renamed their town after the adventurer who has changed their fortune. Over time the miners left, the copper mine in the hills dried up, and the town fell to ruin. In recent years, after the discovery of an old prison in the mountains that promised loot to the brave and foolish, folk have come back and the village has slowly started to grow again.
