Deadwood is located between three high hills.
|I don't see any place called "Eudaimonia" on the map...|
|The settlement described on this page has long since been erased from the world – good luck finding the ruins!|

Notably the town is famous for its most common resources, flint and thyme. To a slightly lesser extent onions, wheat and stones can be found here, stones also being common at the nearby lake front to the east. Wood is entirely absent from the general area, so inhabitants often make day trips south to gather logs to bring back. Often using the numerous huts built by hunters of the woods to rest till they can return. Another problem besides shortage of trees was the lack of food in the area. In its first winter many Deadwoodians nearly starved to death, only saved by a lucky hunting trip, and many of them were still recovering from it the following spring. In the spring, summer and autumn months, villagers that cannot help in the fields are encouraged to forage for onions, wild wheat, flint around the area, and nuts and willow bark when they go south for wood. food is no longer a problem for any one, wheat is abundant in the area. last spring more wheat was sown than could be reaped before winter, and new stockpiles had to be constructed to hold the surplus.
Oddly one of the newer towns to the world has attracted many citizens, currently with 16 citizens it is technically the largest village by population. The town always welcomes new members regardless of their level. citizens are allowed to eat as much as they like and visitors are permitted to take up to three food items a day from the stockpile to feed themselves with no need for payment.
The area has a troubled past, a people calling themselves the Shadow Walker tribe gave up their nomadic lifestyles and declared to every one that they would make for themselves a great home in the north. When they arrived they began to build, but were soon taken by surprise when the town was suddenly named, and no one could find who had placed a totem in the middle of what was to be their town. Angry at this the Shadow Walkers burned down the huts and longhouse and totem that had been placed here, reducing a fledgling town to barren earth again. Out of the ashes they built a new village, their village, and named it Deadwood to reflect the areas bleak lack of even a single tree. Although it had violent beginnings, they hope to find peace here.
Recently as more people flock to Deadwood the town grows, Longhouses replacing huts, trails being dug to the south and paving the town, fields springing up, and people every where you look. Despite struggling for land and food in the past the town of Deadwood now prospers.
As of April 4, 2010, the town of Deadwood appears to be abandoned, with animals wandering around the remnants of any buildings left.
On April 9th, 2010, the town of Deadwood was ranked as the smallest settlement having any residents at all. The settlement lacks a government, however.
