The Legendary 12
A moderate town on the fringes of Othyr, far to the east. Tarsis is a small settlement, but it is beautiful in both its surrounding scenery and the architecture displayed in its buildings. The dominant residence in Tarsis, a castle erected many years ago, stands on the edge of the Desh Bay and looks out over the rest of the town. The Council and other wealthy residents of Tarsis live here, in the many rooms and chambers of the castle.
The bay and forests of Tarsis keep its community thriving. Tarsis has one of the largest shipyards in Othyr, and many of its families thrive off the bay and its creatures. Others gather herbs and log in the nearby forests. These woods around Tarsis are home to a various number of insects, and one in particular, the Quilt Worm, or Mulberry Worm, is indigenous to these parts and can only be found around Tarsis. Quilt Worm’s are hard to find, but when they are discovered, the silk that they weave their cocoons from produces a rich cloth. Some residents of Tarsis devote their work to finding these worms- four or five provide enough silk for a month’s wages as a fisherman.
