Runners Cove - Overview
Runners Cove is a large coastal town with a population of 2100. It is found in the country of Easterly about three days ride south of the capital, Waycoast. Runners Cove started as a smuggler’s haven, but has currently grown to be an integral city within Easterly.
The ruler of Runners Cove is Baron James Tholan. Like most rulers in Easterly, he does not take much interest in the town. The ruler in fact is Sheriff Cane Gildsir. He is hated by many of Runners Cove, but he has the backing of the Baron and the constables of the town.
The town is primarily a privateers’ base, but it is not uncommon to see a well-known pirate strolling throughout town. Generally, the few pirates who frequent Runners Cove do so when the privateers are at sea. However, the constables and the Sheriff do nothing to arrest the pirates, despite a large bounty on their head. This tends to anger the traders, and at times the traders take matters into their own hands.
