King Callistin's government reforms may have firmly taken root throughout the rest of Kasuria, but in the small, closely-knit community that is Challiston Cross, that didn't mean too much--at least, not nearly as much as it would have five years ago. Due in large part to the avalanche of 1168 which decimated the town's infrastructure and the drying up of the coal mines, the backbone of the town's prospering economy floundered. Furres left in droves in search of better opportunities, and the lifestyle of those who chose to stay behind shifted to accommodate their new reality. Many furres get by these days with subsistence farming and living off of the land, of bartering between furres rather than a heavy reliance upon actual gold currency. However close Challiston proper and the King's laws may be, it's impossible to spend a few hours in the town without noting a general sense of contented detachment from the rest of the country's strife and turmoil.
