Overview

Eli is the northerly most settlement on Ibini. It gains some shelter from the bay into which it nestles, and is Baron Arbekís primary shipping port for his easterly produce. The villagers here are constantly concerned about attacks from Baron Gilbertís men to the south, but so far nothing has materialized. Perhaps it be because Gilbert realizes his farms are worth more than those of his northerly neighbours.

Places of Interest

The Church of the Light

A small church dedicated to the Light.

The Shining Light

This tavern sits next to the Church of the Light, but the sign hanging outside is that of an old weathered lighthouse. If you look carefully you can just make out the silver haired face of the current lighthouse keeper peeking out of the upper windows on the sign.

It is a moderately comfortable establishment with clean and modest rooms. The common room has a large fire which is always lit on cold days and a small raised platform is kept clear for the local minstrel to sing and play when called upon.

Food and drink here are both pleasant enough if not exceptional.

The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse (it has no other name), is built on a promontory which juts out into the Northern Ocean. The tower is about sixty feet high and is there to warn the passing Guild ships and fishermen of the dangerous reefs in the region.

The island is reachable only by boat or a causeway when the tide is out. A small house on the island is home to the lighthouse keeper. There is also a dock where the keeper's boat is moored. The island has a small vegetable patch and some chickens and a goat - enough to keep the keeper in food when needed.

Warehouse

A large warehouse.

Description

Eli has one very distinct landmark - a sixty foot tall lighthouse. The structure is built on a promontory which juts out into the Northern Ocean and is reachable only by boat or a causeway when the tide is out. A small house on the island is home to the lighthouse keeper.

Other than that, Eli is mostly just small homes where the locals live. There are the usual little shops and businesses here which cater for a settlement of this size. A baker, smithy and general store can be found near the centre of the village and the one inn is called the Shining Light. It is located next to a small church but the sign dangling from the inn's front shows it is named more for the lighthouse than the church.

A large warehouse is constructed here and is used to store some of the produce collected in the neighbouring farms. Baron Arbek has a series of warehouses outside of the village where the eastern produce is collected, so this warehouse is used as a temporary store for food which comes into the village to be sold onto Guild ships and also for any special Guild items which are unloaded here.

The farmlands around Eli village are not hugely productive and do not generate anything like as much consumables as those of their rivals to the south. It seems that the lands here are simply not as fertile.
