Torn by War
Simmon is a small mountain village town of 74 people on the most direct trade route between the Capitol cities of Payrid and Levin. For most of the year, though, there is too much snow for the route to be as quick as the northern route. During the summer there is enough trade coming through the pass to stock supplies for the long isolated winter with some to spare.
In celebration of the first thaw of the season, the People of Simmon throw the winter-break festival. The winter break festival is the highlight of the entire year with drinking, dancing, and feasting. The festival is kicked off with an maypole and a dance to follow.
