Elet has three inns, and the decline in trade has pushed them into fierce competition with each other. The Knave-on-a-Cask, the Dancing Dairymaid, and the Pork Pie all have bargain prices for rooms and food unless a large caravan is in town.
The town is relatively insignificant other than for its strategic location at the base of the pass into the Yolbiac Vale; it is no larger than several other towns along the Estuary Road. It does have the unusual distinction of having been entirely legally female for a period of two months, five years in the past, as the result of an administrative dispute concerning magic. Mayor Alyn Elevard, a wizard of some note, magically transformed himself into a woman, ordering the alteration of all the town records to reflect her femininity and the new name of Alisce. When a small contingent of the town’s merchants expressed their displeasure at the situation, the mayor responded by administratively ordering a change in all birth and tax registries of the town’s entire male population into the female gender, throwing several wills and property deeds into ambiguity. Threatened by this legal siege, faced with the fact that most of the town’s ordinary inhabitants treated the whole thing as a diverting sort of festival, and eyeing several new gallows being installed near the town gates, the protestors soon declared their effusive support for the mayor, her policies, and the transformation, accompanied by the payment of 100 bushels of grain to the mayor’s personal accounts. Thus, after a brief two months of Elet’s entirely-female legal status, the administrative records were returned to their normal state, the gallows were taken down, and events continued as normal, with Alisce’s political power considerably strengthened by the brief confrontation. Everyone enjoys telling the story, but, after all, the town is close to the Yolbiac Vale. Stranger things have happened.
