Kingsholm lies at the base of a series of rolling foothills. No one knows how long the town has existed; Ian Turnbrand, the innkeeper of the Coronet and Cabbage Inn, insists that someone from his family has run the hostelry for more than three hundred years. Kingsholm appears much like every other town in the land, with one exception--its graveyard.
Built on and in the nearby hills, the graveyard has existed for centuries. Some townsfolk believe the graveyard predates the town, and nearly all the people living in Kingsholm evince a particular pride in that fact. Prominent individuals who die in Kingsholm have the honor of being interred in the graveyard's mausoleum, the centerpiece of the graveyard. Kingsholm's guards-known as sentienls- patrol the graveyard almost as frequently as they patrol the town's streets.
The most notable feature of the graveyard actually lies a little over a mile north of the town, high up in the hills. There stands the statue of an ancient king. no one in Kingsholm knows who he was or why the statue was erected there, but the townsfolk live in awe of the monument. Indeed, while the common folk have no fear of their maintained graveyard, few venture up to visit the forgotten king.
The town of Kingsholm is a rich and sleepy little town that benefits from trade with nearby dwarf clans and peaceful relations with halfling traders and gypsies. It has many trading houses and storage facilities for minerals and other commodities.
