Once it became apparent the Giftwood Loggers of Northwood had no intentions of selling, the Church of the Heathen Prophet founded Southwood as direct competition. Since the town was named before a suitable location was selected Southwood is actually north of Northwood. Loggers at both sites have taken to calling it "Bureaucratic North."
The town is governed by the Chief Foreman of the logging operations, who reports directly to the Regional Speaker.
Industry & Trade
The town residents sleep in tents and other temporary structures. The only buildings constructed in town are for preparing and drying the harvested lumber.
Guilds and Factions
The town was founded as a temporary settlement by the Church of the Heathen Prophet and advertised to the faithful as a valuable way to support their Church. No other factions or organizations have taken root in Southwood since its recent founding.
