Darkest Before Dawn
The island of Eihwaz has only recently been discovered and is being colonized by the people of Yonaguni. It is located to the south of Yonaguni and has a sub-tropic climate. So far only a small village named Benton City has been established in a sheltered bay on the south-west side of the island. Two opportunistic merchants have already started with plantations for food and are busy preparing for their first harvest, which looks very promising.
In the north another suitable location for a city has been discovered by sailors who have rounded the east side of the island due to favorable winds. From Benton City a small group of scouts has already confirmed this finding by travelling through the thick jungle and mountain ranges that cover the center of the island. The construction crew that has been dropped of by boat is supposedly working hard to erect the first buildings. However communication is depending on the supply ships that move up from Benton City and it has been a month since the last report was delivered.
