12.8.8 The art colony of Caer Witrin
Caer Witrin, high in the Vashnar mountains off the Cyrene road, is a settlement of artists and crafters from all over Sapience. Sheltered beneath the mountain from which it takes its name, it is a site of stunning natural beauty, although the residents are too aware also of the hazards of life high in the mountains. The bitter winds can kill the unwary, and the heavy snow that makes the town so picturesque also blocks off the pass in winter, leaving the town isolated. The locals are friendly and helpful, more so to visitors who have proven their goodwill over time. The town guards are well drilled, and form a cooperative and organised unit defending the town against any threat.
