VILLAGE OF THE RED CLAN (The Rua):
The village of the Red Clan (sometimes called “the Rua”), is the current seat of the Battle Lord and is recognized as “The Village of The People.” It is strategically located to face A’Raf, ensuring it will be the first village to engage the Muties should they be foolish enough to get so close. Every element of the Rua’s construction reflects its mission; from its rear wall and main domiciles carved into solid stone mountains at its back, to the high, pointed stockade walls elsewhere. High towers serve as sniper positions for archers and the equipment the Reds train on is arranged to create secondary “walls” to slow Mutie progress should they overrun the perimeter.
Hidden weapon caches are scattered throughout the Rua to ensure the means to defend against hostiles is never more than a short sprint away. The central armory and blacksmiths work near the rocky living quarters in case a last stand situation were to occur.
The other Clan villages were built in a chain behind the Rua and operate largely without fear of Mutie attack. Independent trade routes have sprung up in this relative bubble of safety.
