"Pay closer attention to road. Try not to look at the woods on either side
of you. Try not to stare into the endless vacuum. You know what happens if you stare into
those chasms. They envelope you. They become you, and you become a part of them. You
become a part of nothing.”

DeWitt Falls, Alaska
DeWitt Falls is a magical city located in southeastern Alaska. It’s a town full of lush
forests and babbling creeks, as well as the occasional man-eating life-form and flying
witch. Hey, no one ever said DeWitt Falls wasn’t unique in its inhabitants. A town
polluted with the damned, DeWitt Falls is a place that many tend to take in with their
eyes half closed. Faeries, Wendigos, and mer-men, among many more eccentricities ghost
across the mud-ridden town, and many of which leave their scars before they leave their
As most would expect, City Hall is full of those who haven’t a clue about what they’re
doing. There's a rumor that the Mayor sweeps out the ones without sense and replace them
with brittle bones, ones with nice symmetrical teethmarks. Chomp chomp. Some of the skulls
still have the trademark coif of hair that lawyers are so accustomed to. Now, it’s not
to say that everybody who walks in and out of City Hall is completely clueless, but truth
be told, the citizens of DeWitt Falls don’t like keeping our lawmakers around for too
long. That would get boring, would it not? And we would hate to join the numerous mundane
cities out in the world. Now, the exception is that of those who have magic thrumming in
their veins. And well, the exceptional flying witch. City Hall is located in the middle of
town, its arches high and its flag often found beaten to shreds from what the wind or
hurricanes had to offer.
Ah, the local bookstore, Pageturner, owned by the loveliest escapist on the street,
Alistair Knight. The bookstore has been in his family for generations, and it’s one of
DeWitt Fall's favorite local businesses, as well as the most frequented seeing as you can
find a book on just about anything in the world. He also has a generous supply of records
and Faerie fossils. I wouldn’t miss out on this, Listeners. Don’t forget that he holds
Poetry Readings every Friday at 8pm, be there or be irrelevant.
J's Diner is where you’ll find your caffeine fix. It’s also where you’ll find the
most exotic of tastes in DeWitt Falls. J's Diner ships in some of the weirdest dishes and
seasonings, they work along with the Mayor and the rest of the supernatural beings in
DeWitt Falls to create the best cuisine around. You may find yourself dining next to the
Seelie King or maybe even Cotton Eye Joe, he enjoys a mean human leg in the mornings with
his Earl Grey.
The local Magick shop, Hoodoo Voodoo, is where you’ll find the mysterious and
illustrious McClain Twins, the owners of said shop. They’ll help you find whatever you
need, whether it be chicken legs or the head of a mermaid—2 for $40 on Tuesdays—wow
what a deal! The shop may or may not let you go when you want to leave, it’s been known
to grow attachments, so beware and try not to lead it on…
Deadwood Hollow isn’t full of small talking creatures that teach children lessons of
morality and have incredible adventures, it is a dark and terrifying place made home to
all the various scratchy and bitey creatures of the night. Only the brave and reckless
humans venture inside, as they are faced with Nymphs right away, at least most are. The
Nymphs keep out the creatures and beings who want to harm the woods or the creatures that
reside inside, but hunters have found a secret way in that these ladies do not know of as
it is human made. In these woods, all creatures and humans alike roam around and find
places to reside or hide. It’s a confusing and quixotic place as there are no signs to
help you if you are lost and the trees and various shrubbery change shapes, places, and
colors every hour. Do not step inside the woods unless you have a quick mind or a camera,
as you will got lost quick immediately and lose yourself and your life soon after.
Sinking Rock is located just outside of town, and yes, with a name like sinking, one would
expect for it to be…messy. The area is covered in a cozy and threatening blanket of
trees and a nice body of water. Just don’t try and take a dip, because you may find
yourself without legs.
