Local Settlements


Rosewood is the Capital City of the Kingdom of France. It is the largest settlement in Western Europe, but we must also take account of the numerous settlements in its immediate vicinity. Due to its wealth, Rosewood has a positive impact on any settlements near it. Forechester, Shelby, and Kington are the three towns located near Rosewood. There are eleven villages near Rosewood, some even closer than Forechester, which is the nearest Town.
