There was once a great drought that lasted 2 years. The realm almost completely collapsed, and was changed forever. The citizens of Fairwind have a week long festival in May to celebrate the rains returning to the realm on the “fair wind”. The people are simple farmers, craftsman, artisans, and peasants. (I will be re-drawing my map so everyone can know what the kingdom looks like.) Scattered across the kingdom are smaller towns and several bigger cities. Much of the land is comprised of wilderness and tiny villages.
Fairwind used to be Edwinlund, named for a great king many years ago. After the mysterious 2 year drought the Raynesford family brought stability to the kingdom. They contracted gnomish inventors to create the river feeding aquifers and set up a new system of government.The realm had wells and gnome built pump-fed springs that fed the river to keep it from going dry. Many said it was a sign that the “Rains”ford’s come to the realms aid after the great drought, and the family enjoyed great prosperity, also aided greatly by their fair hand, strength, courage, dedication, and down-to-earth-ness. G’Earth Raynesford in several generation decended from the King Merland Raynesford who saved the realm, but he rules following the same precepts and morals set by his ancestors.
