Baron & Baroness Jotenburg 
Arthur & Amelia Pendragon

Pixies 
There are many pixies inhabiting (infesting) Gracht, particually in the Rising & Dark Forests. They seem to live comfortably alongside the halflings but are notorious for bothering the 'Big'Uns".

Places

Mt. Gravenrest 
tombs of Grafs are near the summit
the High Drop Inn 
a modern and popular inn at White Cliffs
Castle Gracht 
seat of the Graf, most of the humans live in farms between here and Westwold.
City-Bywater 
the largest settlement is mostly halfling.
the Long Canal 
a "Paddle Steamer" travels the canal between the Castle & Bywater. It mostly carries dollied-up halflings on "days out" rather than commercial cargo.
Monastery of Tarnheim 
Raphaelites
Schloss Jotenburg 
seat of the Warden of the Rising Forest (Amelia)
White Cliffs 
perched on the cliffs above Syborite. Most of the cargo (& many people) are hauled up and down the cliffs in a system of heavy duty pulleys and platforms. There is no 'road' down the cliffs, and folk who don't want to pay for "The Lift" have to scramble up the creek gully.
