Dark Water is a 3rd generation mining colony town hidden away in the snowy mountain ranges of the The Great Eastern Continent. Most of it was abandoned a generation ago, though some families move in from time to time, or rent out houses out for the summer.
The town is named Dark Water after mineral caves were discovered deep within the mountain. Precious ores and gems attracted newcomers to the frontier, but severe winters and nightmarish beasts lurking within the caverns scared off most of the colonies.
There is a popular Tavern and Inn known as The White Raven two miles north of Dark Water Town. It’s built upon the most traveled path through the mountain range. Adventurers are sometimes drawn to its mysteries – due to strange behavior of some of its many rooms and a mysterious history surrounding the mansion’s ontology.
