Two Rivers

Tien's Landing

Tien's Landing is a small village, populated by farmers, villagers, merchants, fishermen, and the odd incompetent ministry officials. There are also a number of sailors that stay in the town for an extended period of time due to the closing of the Great Dam. Many villagers fled the village after the Dam closed, as their way of life had gone with it.

Black Leopard School

The Black Leopard School is famous across the Empire, though is noted by many to be in a state of turmoil. The school is being run by two masters, neither of whom leave their rooms regularly. One master is dead, and the other is his murderer, so to say that the school has problems would be an understatement.
