Lying on the southern edges of the Bandit Wood, the sleepy village of Ashtar would probably be of no significance at all were it not for the Old Church which lies some 4 miles outside of town, deeper into the Bandit Wood. Ashtar gets its name from the abundance of local ash trees. Day to day, the village is run by a village council, like most villages in Albion, under the control of Spokesman Enoch; the owner of the village inn. The village is under the effective control and protection of The Count of Waymeet, Lord Thomas. Waymeet is only a day’s walk away.
