Places:

  • Attwater’s – the town’s only common house, John Attwater is the local vitner and brewer located right off of town hall on the village square. There is no inn, but several of the more well-to-do residents rent out their spare rooms to travelers.
  • The Green Stone – there is no church in Green Hope, but there is a small ancient fertility shrine in the village green. It is tended by a small circle of druids.
