Though burnt to the ground a decade ago, this village has rebuilt itself and is now larger and more prosperous. Like its sister town Sabden, a palisade wall surrounds it.
The village’s resurgence is due largely to Frandor’s Keep. Many of her tradesmen and farmers are directly involved in providing logistical support to the fortress. Farmers raise pigs, chickens and dairy cows, and plant barley and winter wheat. Mountain whitefish and trout are abundant in the river and fishermen routinely bring in a good catch. There are an unusual number of craftsmen for a village this size, with several metalworkers, woodworkers, tanners and a water-driven sawmill along the riverbank. The village’s merchants are able to procure nearly anything a buyer with ample coins desires. It is also a popular spot with soldiers on furlough from Frandor’s Keep who come here looking to escape the cold and gloom of the higher elevations. The Green Gryffin Inn and Up North pub are notable establishments – the former having the region’s only brewery.
Vew has a small military contingent that helps patrol the Borderland Road leading to the Keep and escorts merchants and travelers along the way. A constabulary in direct employ of
the Earl of Reyifor provides for local defense. The earl maintains a manor home and horse farm a mile from the village. His chamberlain oversees the property and acts as the
de facto mayor of the village.
