Worrym

Worrym –

Worrym is a small town on the eastern coast of algar. Larger ships cannot dock here, because of the shallow water along the area of the coast, but a small fishing community still exists here. The forest nearby also provides some hunting and lumber to the small community allowing it to mostly take care of itself. The town itself consists of small thatched roof cottages clustered around a large village green where artisans display their goods. The area is known to attract painters and artists because of its dramatic sunrises and the beautiful coastline , though in recent years due to the negligence of the king the community has suffered and most of the talented artists have moved away. though some remnants can be seen in the detailed murals carved into some of the wooden buildings, depicting a thriving market place and theater.
