Duskvale is a small village on the River Darqui.
Historically it was a bustling hub of trade, supporting Duskvale Keep
When the Keep fell to dark forces, monsters appeared and attacked the village. Monster attacks depleted the village, and as more villagers fled to nearby cities, Duskvale nearly died out. Only a few stubborn families stayed on to farm and fish.
The Keep recently acquired new owners, who arrived with a flood of refugees. Using magic, the dilapidated village was restored to functionality, and the refugees settled in. this tripled the size of the village, which has most of the original villagers very happy. However, as all the original villagers are human and none of the refugees are, some people are not happy at all and see this influx as an invasion.
