AD&D Greyhawk Homebrew
Tarkhog is a non-walled city and the furthermost Northern settlement before Iuz/Tauralathan territory. There have been no humanoid raids here or nearby for over eight years. Not since Tauralathan slew Iuz and took over his forces and territory. No one knows why the Northern forces of “evil” did not take the opportunity to invade South while most of Greyhawk battled against Lord Mordan’s demonic and undead hordes coming from the deep South. The bulk of population likely does not wish to dwell on their good fortune and instead reap it’s benefits. You see no sign of worry here in Tarkhog and the mixture of Sylvan Elves and humans living in harmony lends itself to letting your own dark or dire concerns slip away.
There is an abundance of small prosperous shops here in this woodland community that serves as the last outpost of good in the Northern Vesive Forest, filled with craftsmen, two lumbermills, two blacksmiths, a magic shop, three inns and numerous farms all within a days walk. There is even said to be an eccentric old hag on the outskirts who specializes in potions and rare tinctures. With the fall festival only a few weeks away, the village is a buzz of preparations and booth building in the town square.
The larger village inn is The Dashing Dryad.
