An Old Farmhouse
The inside of the house is clean and tidy. A small table sits in the corner
of the room, beside a large window that gives a wonderful view of the green
hills. A small trapdoor in the floor leads down into a cellar. To the east
is a door leading out behind the farmhouse where a large porch lines the
backside of the house. A small mattress lays on the floor in a corner, the
only available space for sleeping. Little bowls line the shelves on the
wall, a large bowl of fruit sits on the table.

This large porch lines the entire backside of the farmhouse. To the north,
is a small vegetable garden that is just big enough to provide for the
family with a little left over to sell in the city to the south. To the
south is a grazing pasture for the animals that help maintain the farm, as
well as those that provide a meal. The forested hills rise up to the east,
creating a peaceful little cove that the farm sits in.

A Grazing Pasture
The small patch of flat land has been left to the farm animals and their
grazing. Hoof prints mark the soft ground where the grass has been clipped
close to the soil by a set of blunt teeth. In other places the grass is
thick and lush, providing the farm animals with more than enough food.
