So, weary traveler, I only have this yet to say about Monkstown. I truly believe it was our holy mission that brought us such good fortune. Over the past 30 years we never wanted for food, clothes, or tools. We had no deaths or illnesses, our health center was never used. We may have a population of only 106, 43 adults, 23 students, and 40 young children, but we are and have been 100% happy, healthy, educated, and clothed. We have a beautiful complex of row houses completed with plenty of available housing for the graduates of our educational center. The row houses you are staying in were originally constructed to house monks but our builders said they were more suited for the homeless. Indeed it is a spot of serene scenic beauty, yes, the educational center also. At most we only had 2 monks in the monastery, they only recently completed the 100th copy of the Holy Book. The first copy was sent via boatman to Smallville, their original book has a special place in our chapel, and the remaining 99 books wait in the trading post for the boatmen to pick up and deliver.
And so weary traveler, in an endeavor to have Monkstown continue as it is, we must send you on your way. We will first teach you what we learned in Smallville about survival and then load a cart of supplies for you. If you don't plan on going far, you may take a few sheep, and then we will wish you ... Fare Thee Well.
