Leafway is a small town of about 1000 people within the elven kingdom of Veilshare. It lies along a trade route from the kingdoms of Damara and Traigon to the northeast and the desert kingdoms to the southwest. Leafway is situated on the edge of the Silver Forest where the trees are less dense and travel is easier. Leafway is also close to the borders with the Outrider Plains supplying the townsfolk with halfling goods and further increasing trade options. The town earns its name from the rows of tall oak trees that grow along the sides of the main road into town. During autumn the leaves fall so deep that the normal sound of horse hooves and wagon wheels on cobblestone is replaced by the crunching churn of leaves being crushed. The mayor of Leafway is an older elven woman named Laaria who has served as mayor for over a century.
