The Gathering of Power
Bittermarsh is a medium sized town, recently of declining importance. It is plagued by raids from Lurkwood to the North.
It is ruled over by the Earl though the only real notable strength behind the town is Allen Hunter, the illegitimate son of the Earl not too affectionately known as The Bastard of Bittermarsh. He has a brusque manner and is known for his uncompromising practical approach to dealing with trouble. He is the only real power that holds at bay Bittermarsh’s decline.
