Flames of War
Dunbar is a small town outside of Gallione Castle with a population that at its height was 400-500. Over the last ten years the population has gradually decreased as its main export in lumber has lost market share. Part of the population were workers at nearby Gallione Castle but with a recent extended absence many of the former servants have left for more steady employment.
Many of the houses are solidly built of stonework and heavy woods, given its current state of disrepair from a shrinking population the buildings have held up well.
Some rumors float around about a green dragon named Parallaxis in the region but no confirmed sightings or trouble.
Currently Dunbar is occupied by the armies of Parn Rosenbach Balmusa
The Dunbar Massacre
An attack using an alchemical reagent by the former alchemy merchant Samwell caused the majority of the population to fall into a violent blood thirsty rage and fall upon each other in an orgy of violence. Men, women and children were all affected. This chemical concoction was built up over time through the potions and treatments that he was giving out to the population and using some of the citizens as guinea pigs.
287 citizens died in the violence, only a handful survived in the town and some who were outside of town at the moment of the attack avoided sharing the fate of their friends. 15 soldiers from the White Dragoons 10th company suffered the same fate in a related attack using a modified victim that had been setup as a trap.
Some areas of the town caught fire and burned during the incident but the majority of the town remains intact.
13 individuals survived the massacre including
Ulgard Tolsten,Horik, Jebeddo Ingrid Lurelai, Gus, Robert, Eve, Natty, Ingram, Odel and Ruth.
