Creston was the first stop for the party in the campaign. It is currently experiencing a distressing spree of unexplained disappearances, which is frightening a significant portion of its populace into fleeing the town.
It is a town in the center of the Forest, but within the town's boundaries the trees have been tamed and mostly cleared away. The road passes straight through the center of town, but is bordered by a wall of well-kept trees. On the left (if you stand on the road facing the capital) is the tavern and inn, a multi-storied brick building, simple yet sturdy. The tavern is on the first floor, and the inn takes up the other five. Near the tavern is a park, with a flower garden that is publicly taken care of, a fancy fountain with benches surrounding it, a gazebo, a set of swinging benches, and a nice grass field. In the trees behind the tavern, the top tower of the monastery is seen, and a small dirt path leads into the woods to the monastery's entrance. The job board is posted on the tavern's outside wall.
On the other side of the road, the residential area is situated behind the commercial area. In the commercial street (it runs parallel to the main road) we have: travel/outdoors merchandise, apothecary, cobbler/tailor, butcher, post office, monastery, grocer, hospital, baker, armour/weapon store, and library. On the residential street (parallel to the others), the school is a small building at the end of the road.
