Milbourne

This is a town of some 160 people, most of whom live in the farmsteads that surround the town on both sides of the river. Buildings are almost all of wood; only the Old Granary, the Mill House, and the Mansion House are of limestone (from the Blanryde Hills). Virtually everyone here earns a living either from farming or from mining in the southern Blanrydes for lead and copper. Near the town itself, most work is agrarian; the miners live in work camps just outside the mines, though they bring their ores into town to sell at the Exchange. Trade is fairly circumscribed. A handful of outside merchants visit periodically to negotiate prices for the ores, but the Carman family handles almost all ore sales, and newcomers to the trading business are given short shrift. Trading has been conducted between the same leading families for generations, and old habits die hard. Wood from the area’s woodlands is good enough for local use but not worth the expense of conveying any distance to sell. There is some seasonal trade in fruit, especially from the Redwood, and in good years a little surplus produce or wool from local farming and herding.
