The Mining VillageEdit
The Mining Village is a minor settlement in the western Earth Kingdom situated near the Mo Ce Sea shoreline.
The mining village is located in the snow-capped mountains of the western Earth Kingdom. These landforms have little vegetation on them and are yellow in coloration. The village is situated within a small valley, through which flows a small creek. An earthen wall surrounds the settlement, which has raised fortifications at its four corners.
The village contains only a few low-rise buildings. There are no paved roads, and dirt walkways that wind between the scattered structures of the village are the only thoroughfares. Most buildings are identical to each other; they all have a green roof, yellow walls, few windows, and a single wooden door at the front entrance. The windows have boards attached to them, which can be used to block light when necessary. The village's centerpiece building is a large palace-like structure found off to one side. It has intricate decorations and is a classic example of Earth Kingdom architecture. A large, grand entrance is at the back of its front porch, which is supported by golden beams and pillars. The building is several stories tall, and has much floor space, making it the largest structure in the village. The uppermost floor has a small balcony that overlooks the entire village. Shingles cover the building's curved roof, which is green.
The mining village has a very destitute market. Outdoors, there are many stalls and street side stands, from where hats and other cheap accessories can be purchased. Indoors, there are numerous shops and convenience stores.
