It Started With a Kidnapped Pig...
Goldenfields is a huge walled temple-farm dedicated to Chauntea, the goddess of agriculture. Called “the granary of the North” (sometimes “The breadbasket of the North”, it’s the only reason many Northerners ever taste soft-fleshed fruit larger than bush berries. It produces grains as well as dried, oil-packed, or salted foodstuffs preserved in vast storage cellars, vats and grain towers.
Currently run by Abbot Ellardin Darovik, priest of Chauntea, Goldenfields is a stronghold of the Emerald Enclave. Members of that faction are as welcome here, as are clergy of Chauntea, many of whom stay for months at a time to help with the farm work and the vigilant defence against insects and blights, as well as the would-be raiders, vandals and plunderers. Hired adventurers patrol the walls and the land immediately around Goldenfields.
More than five thousand people live and work at the temple-farm the year round, farming more than twenty square miles.
