Heading to the south from the entrance of the stronghold, walking past the river, plains, and trees, eventually you will enter the village proper. Greeted by a campfire, with a station for a bell beside, this serves as the center of the houses in the village. The houses are built with combination of straw and wood walls, and wood roofs. The only house that is built with rock is the house exclusively for current chiefs and their families. Bookmark here
