And now, back to Cape Verdigris:
On the far side of the mountain is Tapestry Hills, the most remote of Cape Verdigris’s settlements. Tapestry Hills is known for its textiles and wood crafting, with its great fields of long grass, groves of willow trees, and colonies of shining silk spiders from which the locals gather their harvest. The idyllic village overlooks the ocean from a great cliff, and colourful windmills stud the landscape around the village while kites and windsocks scatter in the sea breeze. Far from the beaten track, Tapestry Hills is a quiet and modest counterpart to its bustling neighbours on the western side of the volcano.
Tapestry Hills will be illustrated by Laura Bifano.
Rather than elect an official, Tapestry Hills is run each year by the winner of the previous years’ silk-spinning contest. This year, the winner is Willow Abicus, a portly, transmasculine dwarf barely out of his teens. A gentle, contemplative, and often anxious soul, Willow seems a bit uncertain how to wield the authority of an entire village, but Tapestry Hills is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the other two villages that, fortunately, the trials aren’t that challenging… so far. Willow will be drawn by Maddi Gonzalez.
