The Village of Sunberry

Sunberry is a small village near Karoon.  This village is small, maybe a dozen families, with adobe houses and small goat and sheep herds.  The people here are quiet, retrospective people, slow to address others and slow in their conversations, as if they have all the time in the world.  The landscape is mostly plains land, but a small stream burbles forth from a spring that is active all year.  Bushes of berries grow around the stream, providing lots of berries to supplement a limited diet.   Most people miss Sunberry, but those who wish to take a more direct route to Karoon from Sunvale may sometimes come across this small, unimpressive village.  The village's biggest secret is that a source of raw gold is near by.  The village doesn't talk about it and only a few elders know where exactly it is.  The gold is used sparingly, but it allows the village to buy necessary things they couldn't otherwise afford.
