Midwinter Welcome to Käseriecht a peaceful town locked in the middle of winter. Snow shines on the roofs of the houses and halls and fills the streets. Children play and throw snowballs at each other as the banking of hammers and smell of freshly cut wood permeates the town. It is midwinter and everyone old enough is preparing for the festival of the solstice that will happen in a week, a full day of celebration and merriment lasting well into the night. All is safe and prosperous within the wall, the warm light of the lamps and from the windows filling the streets even after the early sunsets. All is happy inside the walls of Käseriecht. While outside, no one knows. No news from any other town has reached them in almost 30 years, a human generation, and no travelers have come through since then. But so long as they stay within the walls, they are safe. Ground rules: - No dark/evil characters, this town has been at peace for over a generation. - Any fantasy race allowed so long as it complies with the previous rule. - Comic violence is allowed and encouraged, but no showboating or scene stealing. - Your character is either local or has been in town for more than 30 years. No one knows why there are no longer any travelers and everyone who has gone to find out hasn’t returned. The golden rule is to have fun! A Shout out to all Girl Genius readers! You already know the tone I want to set for this!
