Into the Wild (KingMaker AP)
Oleg's Trading Post
Located approximately 100 miles from Restov along the South Rostland Road, Oleg’s Trading Post is the northernmost outpost of the new kingdom of Veteris. It is first and foremost a trading outpost, well protected and equipped to provide everything a merchant caravan trundling along the South Rostland Road might need, from caravan supplies and survival gear, to comfortable inns and taverns, to the most famous brewery from Restov to New Stetven.
It is the center of the old community of frontier farmers and the trappers, hunters, woodcutters, charcoal burners and others who choose to make their lives in the wilds of Veteris’s northern fringe and the new community of tradesmen, travelers, and merchants making their way down the South Rostland Road. The town is surrounded by a stone wall and is centered on the Old Market, the first market in town that fronts the old trading post, which by itself is large enough to accommodate several caravans.
The town is the hub of the growing community making up northern Veteris. Levetown primarily sells food from local farms and drink from Levetown Brewery, horses for riding or harness, survival supplies for woodsfolk and explorers, and caravan supplies and services. The small town has to import most of its processed goods, such as armor, weapons, and metal tools. A few times a year, though, Levetown receives a shipment of sulfur from Levoca. This mineral is dangerous to mine and highly prized by arcanists everywhere, and derives a high premium for the town when it is available.
There are a few small communities within a day’s ride of Levetown. To the west, the rapidly growing halfling and human co-op grows mushrooms, corn, and vegetables and trades turkeys and chickens as well as supplying fierce, well trained guard dogs. To the southwest, closer to forest, the Shelburne family has been maintaining an orchard of apples, peaches and sour cherries since before Oleg arrived and has welcomed the influx of hands to help with the work. There is also a beekeeper who lives to the southeast (Tenzekil Braybrittle), a horse ranch and pseudo home for wayward boys to the east, and a hermit alchemist (Bokken) who deals primarily through the small number of trusted folks he has allowed to establish homesteads nearby.
A major crossroads, Leveton sits at the junction of 2 major roads and a network of smaller roads. The South Rostland Road runs east to Restov and northwest to New Stetven just north of Leveton’s walls. Swan Road splits off from the South Rostland Road halfway to New Stetven, branching further northwest with its northern end in far-off Silverhall- a Lebedan farming community sits off the Road a few miles northwest of Leveton. The North Road runs south to north from Leveton to Paza through Leveton.
Temple Road leads southwest past Shelburne Orchard through the Old Margreve to Erastil’s Temple of the Elk, one of the few safe paths through that dark wood. Ranch Road leads southeast, the trail trampled into the grass by Vekkel’s horses and travelers seeking out Bokken or Valerie’s assistance. Farm Road leads almost directly west to the cluster of farms that have sprung up around the Bunce Poultry Farm and Woodbristle Homestead.
