The town of Red Larch is a waystop on the Long Road and located at the intersection of three trails. One trail leads to the Bargewright Inn, another to Kheldell, and the third runs into the Sumber Hills to derelict, monster-infested keeps. The town is named for a stand of red larch trees that were chopped down about the time of the town’s founding.
Red Larch is known for its nourishing, though otherwise un-noteworthy food, called crumblecake. Crumblecakes were made into moist loaves from nuts, chickpea mash, chopped roots and greens, turkey and wildfowl scraps, all baked together.
