Poisson is a fortified village located at the top of the cliffs on the Hidden Coast. It is named for the captain of the garrison who first built the village's fortifications.[1]

Power groups[edit | edit source]

The village mayor is a man named Beorn Lammond, who inhabits its main fortress.

Defenses[edit | edit source]

Poisson is well-defended by a wooden wall which lines the coast. Within the village lies its primary defensive structure, a walled fortification named Fort Kearny. The village's location at the highest point on the cliffs also contributes to its defensive position.

The garrison at the village is accompanied by a peasant militia in times of emergency. They are generally able to defend both the village itself and all land within one day's travel.

History[edit | edit source]

Founding[edit | edit source]

Poisson's inhabitants originally lived at the mouth of the Mermaid's Tears river, as it leads into the Misty Bay on the Hidden Coast. Frequent raids from pirates led the villagers to found a new, better defensible settlement further up the cliffs.

The new settlement was named Poisson's Village, after the garrison captain who established the original fortress at the site around ten years ago. Subsequent wooden fortifications were successful in protecting the village from pirate attacks.

Recent history[edit | edit source]

Recently, a powerful mage named Sionaas began hiring a large number of workers from Poisson to construct a tower high in the Windswept Wall mountain range. This rankled the mayor, who is concerned that it may leave the village militia short of manpower in the event of a pirate raid.
