South of Solace Bay is a small town named Havalina.
It sits on the shores of Lake Audra specifically at end of the Straights of Pleura. The main town is on a peninsula called Foxclif Point.
It initallly began as a fishing community, but a larger farming community began growing around it.
A year ago (1909), the settlement chartered under Inakaye Law and became a town electing Farka Toure as their first Mayor. As it was with Lake Maureen's Mayor (McKinley Morganfield), Farka Toure is the owner of the Town's General Store. This is a common occurence, because the store owner's are usually the most in touch with local event's and everyone in the town knows and trusts them.
Recently, Mckinley Morganfield, Mayor of Lake Maureen to the north, constructed a road to Havalina from Lake Maureen. Since then there has been increased trade through the Havalina Docks.
Just this year, the town sold land to the Duluth Bay Shipping Co. to construct a small port on the east side of Foxclif Point (where the slopes aren't as steep). Land was also sold to three Food Manufacturing companies who will construct fish canning facilities in Havalina. This new port is expected to bring many inhabitants to Havalina, and also increase trade from Lake Maureen and Solace Bay through the area.
James Wyant of the Solace Bay Co. Sees these developments taking place from up north in his city and much like the eye of Sauron, he begins to shift his gaze southward upon the town of Havalina. "with a Port In Havalina, I could have direct trade to Duluth as well as Mariston. I could increase my already Immense profits . . ."
