This budding village lies about 20 miles north and a little west of Salem. There are no major roads connecting to it and can only be reached on foot or by those who know the few passable roadways, which makes it a much more secure settlement.
The village was once the base for slavers. After the PC’s defeated the slavers and freed the slaves, they decided to stay on and live there, electing Richard Wile, who was there to rescue his wife, Natalie, as their leader. While the settlement was never officially named, it has come to be called Richard’s Hope by those who live there, as it is his hope that they will be able to create a new sort of community in this now desolate wasteland of a world.
