History

The hamlet of Shepsbourne was founded almost 400 years after the founding of Abercraeg, following the Second Coalition against the Wilds and the partial success that followed, opening up the land to allow for a new settlement. When selecting the location for this settlement, the hilly land of the eastern portion of the isle was unsuitable for farming, but was perfect for the ranching niche that was unfulfilled on the island.

Architecture

The hamlet mirrors mostly Tudor style homes, with use and function being preferred over any formality of the homes. There are three full stone buildings, however, hosting the mayor's family and the leaders of the factions.

Geography

The local geography sees the main village nestled in a valley of sorts, surrounded by hills that are abundant with grazing grasses that make intersect for the ideal terrain for the livestock of the village.

Natural Resources

The village hosts mainly animals exports and three specialists involving rope braiding on a larger scale.
