The Shadow of the Beast
Olux is a large town in the swamp of Gavel, and an important rest stop in the region. Unlike the quartz city of Llevigar to the South, Olux is run down and poor, lacking the materials and money to expand and grow stronger, and is plagued by the Decay and many other unusual threats. Unlike many Gavellian cities, the Olux bank lies empty, as the town's resources have all been spent in a seemingly ineffective attempt to fight the Decay.
There are several Wheat and Barley farms in and around the town. The town is surrounded by moderately large wooden walls, keeping it safe from most outside threats. The bank is surrounded by a marketplace, where most of the town's amenities can be accessed.
Although the swamp around Olux was once fertile and green, as the Decay began spreading throughout the land, it soon suffered the same fate as the Dark Forest and the Kander Forest, turning into a dark, impoverished swamp. Olux soon became very poor, as the city's crops failed and much of the town's emerald hoard was spent trying to deal with the Decay and fight its influence.
However, one day, a man named Dr. Urelix appeared in the town and started selling its impoverished citizens Guard Golems of mysterious origin. Although the supply of golems was steady and the town's burdens were slightly lessened, reports of missing citizens and farmers began appearing all over the Swamp. Those who worked where the Iron Golems were being produced, Urelix's Iron Golem Factory, also didn't speak about their experiences in it.
Yet, there is one person who knew the truth about the Guard Golems, the Mayor of Olux. He has an uneasy deal with Dr. Urelix: as long as the Mayor would keep purchasing Urelix's golems and keep the horrifingly unethical process of creating golems secret, Urelix would keep supplying the town with them, providing reliable guards not just to Olux but to the rest of the province and to Wynn as well. This deal is still in effect to this day, and the Iron Golem factory's methods remain a secret.
