The Village Of White Rock: An Introduction
The village of White Rock is situated on a large wide bend in the Sorsis River, 100 miles due west of South Bay and 80 miles due east of Dragon Hill. In fact, the bend is caused by the huge stone mass the village is named for. The rock itself is 250 feet wide along the river, extends back another 400 feet and rises to a height of 175 feet, leaning out over the river a few yards.
This wide spot in the river allows for barges and other river vessels to tie up at the docks and take on cargo, supplies, or just have a rest. Half a dozen boats pass through every day, but during the harvest season, that number can triple.
The village is located at the “T” intersection of Trade Road One and Wheat Road, in the central valley of Valduria. As the name Wheat Road implies, the area is mostly covered by vast wheat fields, along with a number of other types of farms.
The population of White Rock is about 80% Human, 10% Halfling and 10% various other peoples. The total population is around 600 people. A mayor is elected every 3 years and nobody can be mayor more than once without waiting 6 years. The village council is made up of 6 adults whose names are drawn at random. They also serve for 2 years.
Aside from the occasional fight between river boatmen, White Rock is a peaceful place.

The Village Of White Rock: The Leaping Stag
As with most villages and towns, White Rock started out as a stop along a road, and the Leaping Stag is where travelers stopped to quench their thirst.
First built as a three room wooden building in 885, the tavern is now considerably larger, but still serving up drinks to thirsty travelers, river folk and farmers 305 years later.
The Zanderz family has owned and operated the Leaping Stag since day one. Rilla Zanderz, the current matriarch of the family, has contracted with many breweries and wineries to ensure that the selection of drinks is a varied one.
The Leaping Stag is located at #1 Trade Road One and is open from 8:00 am until 3:00 am every day.
