Basselton is frequent stop for merchants, traders, and travelers between the two cities. It is about five days north of Riber and six days south of Sparion. There are larger villages and towns along the road, and Basselton is relatively small and inconspicuous by comparison. Most residents are farmers, shepherds, or small-time merchants. In the center of the village, beside a massive oak tree, is the Wandering Cow – a tavern and inn.
