Needlehole about TA 1540

A rude family of Dunmen, the Measgans, run a tavern and inn here. The local Hobbits do not like them and offer little neighborly warmth. The Dunmen are hoping to sell out. So far, no Hobbit desiring to live in the area has come up with enough hard currency.

A peaceful riverside farming village. Floods are never as severe here as downriver. A river spirit, now taking the form of an elderly Hobbit , warns of flood danger and sometimes directs diking efforts.
