Blackvale

Blackvale is a long-established fishing and mining settlement on the north shore of the Cael. The town is built at the end of a bay, with residential and commercial areas up in the steep hills leading away from the quayside. Blackvale was originally a mining colony of Sandviken, but they rejected Sandviken’s rule, and joined the expanding Tynwald of Evenshore.
