~(X) General Information (X)~
The Easternmost County of Thorne and the Town of Thorne protect the Eastern Gateway to the Kingdom of Anhald. At the crossroads of many important cities and the site of territorial scuffles with neighbors, Thorne maintains a strong sense of identity and pride among its expansionist neighbors.

~(X) History (X)~
The roots of the County of Thorne were founded with the initial charters of land granted by King Peter. Upon the re-founding of the Kingdom of Anhald following the mass exodus driven by the undead hordes and the weakened bastion stones. The Kingdom was divided into many counties, shared and spread among the various lords of Anhald. House Bayard, one of the last Great Houses to lose land, and the one house to house the royal family during the undead menace, was granted one of the largest counties in the new kingdom. However, due to the lack of foresight, and the inability to obtain building materials in the new frontier, Lord Bayard was delayed in starting his charter settlement. As such, large tracts of his land were settled and squatted on by the poorer peasants of House Eberhall in County Eberland.
The site of the town of Thorne was chosen due to the prominent northern cliff-face the overlooked the East-West crossroad that entered the Kingdom. Lord Bayard began with the expectation that this would be a small border fort, but with the founding of rich soils and ores within the Blue Mountains, the town expanded.
~(X) Culture (X)~
While Lord Bayard is of Lavoyardian stock, and thus was raised in the Lavoyard tradition, he has adopted many of the Anhalder ways. As such, Thorne is representative of this Anhalder culture.

~(X) Traits of Those from Thorne (X)~
Values such as hard work, honesty, and faithfulness are highly valued, while cowardice, sloth, and religious apathy are appalled. Men and women from Thorne are of similar stock to the rest of their Anhalder brethren: of middling height, strong builds, and dark hair. Blonde is also common, and a throwback to old Lavoyard stock.

Alpine.png
Physical Geology:
Found at the northernmost tip of the Blue Mountain Range and in the valley south of the Green Mountain Range of Eberhall, Thorne is town built upon cool mineral-rich soils. Mechanical and chemical weathering have left most of the soils in the valley rich in silt and low in sand and clay. As such, it is perfect soil for the farming community that exists there. The iron rich rocks of the mountains provide fortification to any crops grown there, but it does make the water harder than other areas.​

Holy, moley, Sank love.

Also, changed the basic material composition of the citadel and worked on it a bit. It now matches the town a bit more, although it looks slightly less siege-sturdy.

Added a meadery and the subsequent bee hives complete with the bee hive head blocks inside. I haven't fill out the interior of the meadery, but it's progress.​

Realized I haven't updated this in a bit. There has been a sizeable amount of progress made on all fronts. Added is the Eastern District as well as a few more fields of wheat. I've worked on another housing complex inside the walls of the Western District, and naturally I've put some work into the palace (I just cannot seem to get the exterior right though!)
