The town of Long Fall is the largest settlement in the land of Bouvet. The whole of the town comprises a 40 acre semi-circle and a few thousand inhabitants. Most of the citizens are humans, though dwarves, elves, and gnomes are also present (roughly 10% dwaves, 5% each elves and gnomes, and a negligible number of half-elves).
Older building are completely stone, mined and constructed by dwarves, but newer structures combine some stone with mostly wood construction. The founders also laid a stone outer wall (six feet high) with three open gates and a large 3×3 gridded stone street system. Outside the wall, a moat was dug, flooded, and frozen. In town, land closest to the ocean is given over to farms, where crops can receive the most sunlight – except for the location of the Lighthouse, sighted where it can see the Temple of the Light.
Historically, Long Fall was dominated by dwarfs, whose mining and masonry were essential to constructing the outer wall, laying the main roads, and building the first structures. At the time, the dwarf population was actually higher than that of human (with elves and gnomes always in the minority). Over time, however, the lifespan and maturation time of the various races brought humans into the majority. Additionally, the dwarfs began to long for their old underground civilization and started to fashion abodes in the old mining tunnels. Eventually, this led to a handing over of Long Fall’s governance (i.e. The Temple of the Light) to humans and move of nearly all dwarves to their underground settlement.
