Yorgen is the capital city of the Ashenwood province. Like most of the cities in the province it is composed mostly of log buildings widely spaced to reduce the dangers of fire. The log cabins and longhouses are surrounded by high wooded palisade walls to defend against gnolls and other monsters.
Duke Beowulf Wiglaf rules Yorgen and Ashenwood from Herot. Herot is a large wooden mead-hall adjacent to a large keep of wood and stone. The mead-hall is used for meeting and grand feasts and the keep is the residence of the Wiglaf clan and the city armory. Herot keep is one of the few buildings in the province composed mostly of stone due to the availability of wood and the scarcity of good stone quarries in the region.
