Dwarven Misgivings

Sted Cair Town Square

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

You stand in the middle of Sted Cair’s Town Square, the social hub of the township.  All around you the citizens of Sted Cair are enjoying the fine weather as they travel through, going about their daily business.

The square itself is somewhat parklike, dominated in the center by a large grey marble statue of Aslan.  The lion is seated and looks toward the east where Cair Paravel stands and his own land lies far beyond the ocean.  His expression, while impressive, is neither menacing nor sedate.  Instead, it simply looks majestic.  A plaque underneath the statue simply reads, “Aslan”.

Streets lead in all four directions out of the square. There are buildings at each corner as well.  To the northeast is the Explorer’s shop, and the Fruit Market sits under an impressive pavillion to the northwest.  The Satyr’s Hoof Tavern lies to the southwest, and Grumich’s Pawnshop is southeast.

Mateo strolls through the town square, looking around with every sign of interest. As he passes the statue he pauses, looking up at it.

A bat with an orange ruff comes out of the fruit market, which is starting to close for the evening. The Faun who owns it helps fasten on her satchel, now bulging with fruit. Much of it looks just a little bruised or withered; perhaps it is the fruit that’s been around too long.

Mateo looks around from the statue and happens to spot the interaction, with a small amount of hesitation he says, “Hello there?”
