I got tired of being in the snow all the time, so I started creating some stuff for the sunny south again. There’s still some things to be done there. This is the town of Dirch. Dirch is really a hellhole; a small town with a nearby military camp and that gloomy castle which can be seen in the background. And then there are the mines nearby.
My idea is that the baron of the castle has been deposed by the government in Anvil Nova and he’s now living out in the woods with a band of resistance fighters. The government calls them bandits and outlaws, but they are really some kind of Robin Hood-inspired “take from the rich, give to the poor” type of people. They’ve been fighting their secret war for years, and the resolution to their struggle will be witnessed as a part of the main quest.
