History & Founding
Written by Delilah
The village of Maplewood Retreat has a fairly long history in Mystic Highlands. It started off when Teletolumby and Kreigstad met, got in a drunken brawl, explored the wilds and finally came to the settlement of a very kind lady, Elleanne. She gave them shelter and food in return for some work then sent them to the SW to find a place to settle. It was not long before they found a lovely maplewood forest and decided to settle near a guard tower. They had to fight many trolls and lava spiders before they could even begin to settle. Then a woman named Mynerva happened upon them and joined them in their efforts. Teletolumby focused on getting a good mine going and then turned to making roads. Kreigstad spent his time making weapons and leather armor to better defend the village. Finally, Mynerva started farming, tending some domestic animals and cooking to keep everyone fed.
The three quickly decided that they wanted to build a place for newcomers to find safety and build skills and funds to strike out on their own. Recruiting started right away and it was not long before Maplewood was a thriving town with many people coming and going, most leaving their mark in at least some small way.
