Found at the crossroads of the Old Dwarf and Moot Roads, the small town of Wördern lies within the Imperial Province of Stirland.[1a]

The town has an approximate population of 425[1a] and is relatively poor, with dilapidated walls and ill-equipped guards. In addition, residents of Wördern are known to be particularly distrustful of outsiders.[2]

The town is notorious for a tradition that, when celebrating a child's birthday, the family makes a straw-man the size of a Halfling, and stuff it with treats and candies that he "stole" from the children. Then, it is hung from a tree while blindfolded children beat it with sticks until it breaks and "gives back" the candy. Locals deny that drunks have occasionally used a real Halfling for this.[1a]
