Extent: The Warden of the North is tasked with protecting and patrolling the lands from the Unicorn Run river and the Graywood in the west, to Covere manor and the Barony of deTrevani in the east; from the Grayflow River in the south to the edge of the Dire Wood to the north. Most of this land is currently wilderness. Actual land of Northwood Manor (previously Travys Manor) is about 60 square miles (in 1481), covering 10 miles east-west and 7 miles north-south at the greatest extent. The area is mostly light woodland, with farming and most of the population concentrated along a narrow strip for about 2 miles north of the river, and around Northwood Manor house (from 1481).  The forest verge is used for herding pigs and sheep, for firewood, hunting, and some logging.

Northwood Manor Smithy
Smith: Dendry Nistral (1461-) from M6 181 DR. Dendry is the more talented of Megana Nistral's two brothers. He married the manor housekeeper/cook Milla Strong M9 1481 DR.
100gp to set up the smithy, gives 50% discount on suits of armour for soldiers. The reduced cost of maintaining 40 soldiers' armour & gear (by sending it to Loudwater for repair) equates to the cost of having one armour smith, so net cost ca 5gp/month. Dendry spends the time he's not needed for maintenance on forging scales, helms etc for extra suits of armour so they can be swiftly put together if you recruit more men. Also spear points and shields if you need to raise a levy, etc.

Staff (By Kimberly Pauley)
Lirael's Uncle Vetch (human) and his two sons Rhenn (half-elf) and Vail (half-elf) are handy. Vetch is also good with horses and oversees the repair & bringing up to date of the stables. He's a bit of a drunkard, though, Dunstan keeps an eye on him around Anwyn's ale. His wife Adina (Moon Elf) is a bit sickly and weak but very handy with herbs and potions and growing things; she'd be happy to keep the kitchen gardens (likely with the help of Anwyn's kids.
Lirael's younger brother Arvis (half-elf) is a young ranger, being trained by Jorah, Lirael and Pealias - he spends most of his time in the surrounding woods. He likes to camp and  supplements the food stores with wild game...he's particularly good at snaring rabbits.

Staff (1482 DR)
Cook: Milla Nistral (nee Strong) (previously Anwyn Pyro - now managing Green Tankard). 
Scullery Maid: Breton Pyro, Anywn's daughter.
Stable Master: Vetch and his two strapping (well, as strapping as half-elves can be) lads Vail and Rhenn) that are happy to do whatever task is at hand. 
Housekeeper: Bevra, a cousin of Lirael's, the daughter of Lirael's Aunt Syrah. Keeps the rest of the house (not the kitchen) in order.

Dependents (1480 DR)
Adina (who will help with the gardens/herbs, etc.); Anwyn's 6 other children: Bessye, Cullen, Abbella, Devra, Ethel, and Frist) where not at Green Regent. Arvis doesn't fancy being on official payroll, but is picking up ranger skills from Paelias and Lirael and some moves from Jareth as well.

Tavysburg (pop. 402)

Dame Aryn Blackthorn
The palisaded hamlet of Tavysburg is notable for the well-fortified Blackthorn manor; the Blackthorn family are traditionally the Reeves (tax collectors) and Stewards of Travys Manor. Dame Aryn Blackthorn-Covere, 1418-, thin, slightly birdlike) of Hartsfont is current Reeve, succeeding her deceased husband Sir Michael Blackthorn (1412-1463). Dame Aryn is the aunt of Sir Brandini Covere, the lord of Hartsfont, and first cousin to the Baroness Amara deTrevani. A sharp head and cool, Aryn is known to be ambitious for her children; she has long wished to see a Blackthorn as Warden of the North.
She has three sons - the second Sir Jorah (1444-) is a famous Ranger and the Steward of Travys Manor. A mighty warrior, he is said to fear only the sound of his mother's voice... Aryn Blackthorn's eldest is Sir Michael (1442-, big, bluff, bearded, wields flail), the Vice-Reeve and heir to the Blackthorn estate. Few argue when he comes for the taxes... The youngest is baby bother Sir Arren (1450-, lean, fair hair, handsome, wields greatsword). Michael and Arren were also Rangers in their younger days, but their woodland skills have now fallen into disuse. They are both married, to Jara & Mara, two of Sir Otto Falthis of Malt's daughters, now with young families - a son to Michael, a daughter to Arren. But they prefer to spend their time sparring, or drinking and carousing at the White Wolf. Sir Jorah is teetotal since the terrible night in M6 1479 DR when Travys Manor was sacked as he caroused with his brothers at the White Wolf.

The White Wolf Inn
Vera Strong, the Innkeep's wife

Bartolomew Strong the Innkeeper
Tavysburg has one Inn/Tavern, The White Wolf, run since 1478 DR by Bartolomew Strong (1438-) and his young wife Vera Strong (nee Thane) (1452-), younger sister of Algrim Thane of the Fisher's Friend in Loudwater.  Bartolomew is certainly strong, but not too bright,  quick-witted Vera is the brains of the outfit. The White Wolf serves as a popular local watering hole, and as a stopping point for travellers on the road from Secomber over the river to Loudwater, or to points east (DeTrevani-Erstlin-Orlbar). Bartolomew's older brother Tom Strong (1436-) is manager of the Reeve's bakery, where all the villagers must bake their bread; the Reeve collects the baking tax in flour or bread. Despite this, Tom Strong's eldest daughter Milla Strong (1460-) is a hardworking good-natured lass, and exceedingly popular, Unmarried, when not working she visits the tavern for a cup of ale, and was often found there on the lap of Sir Arren Blackthorn. She never let him go too far, but his wife was unlikely to approve... 
Fr. Clintus Moonwatcher
At end M7 1480 Milla Strong was hired by Lady Lirael as the new Northwood Manor cook/housekeeper. In 1481 DR she seems to have an eye for the newly matured Arvis, Lirael's baby brother... In M9 1481 the Northwood smith Dendry Nistral made an honest woman of Milla, probably to Lirael's relief. 
The local priest in Tavysburg is Father Clintus Moonwatcher (1424-). Regarded as affable but absent-minded, he primarily reveres Selune, but his shrine also holds small altars to Mielikki and Silvanus, the primary gods of the Vale. Fr. Clintus can perform Religious Rituals to 4th level. Fr. Clintus has a telescope, and spends many hours observing the night sky. In mid M6 1480 DR he spotted a new red star on the eastern horizon, just before dawn - the sign of the approaching Death Cyst incursion.

Neighbouring Domains
West: Kingdom of the Graywood Elves, King Cirallon Swancloak & Queen Avaranme
North: The Direwood Tigerclaw Uthgardt, Bitterstrike the white dragon, & Prince Konn, son of Scargash
East: Covere Manor (Sir Brandini), Barony of deTrevani (Lady Amara deTrevani)
South (beyond R. Grayflow): Brooke Manor (Sir Halvard), Jameson Manor (Sir Cottel), Loudwater Town/Moonfire Manor (Lady Eclara Moonfire)

West of Tavysburg there's a lot of fallow land along the north bank of the river where new manors have now (1482) been founded within the Wardship of the North. The area had been abandoned decades ago due to Drow raiders from the Endless Caverns carrying off slaves.

Economy & Taxation
Economically active persons are 40% of total population. Each economically active person produces on average 50gp worth/year GDP, or 100gp/1000sp per household of 5 (2 active, 3 inactive).  This breaks down into 5gp/month per person labouring, with average 10 months of labour each year, and 2 months inactive.
Therefore total annual GDP averages 20gp/person
Up to 1/3 of GDP is taken in taxes:
10% coin - 2gp per person
10% non-coin levies - milled flour, textiles etc
13% in labour - 40 days service per active person

Coin Taxes average 2gp/person
20% to High Lord (0.4gp)
20% to Reeve (0.4gp)
60% to Warden (1.2gp)
Most of the Coin Tax is levied following the harvest, with levy completed by the start of the following year (M1).

The future?
Sufficiently long-term the Wardship of the North could be a prosperous farming Barony of ca 140 square miles settled land (without significant logging), probably at a max population density of around 80 people per square mile in the fertile upland valley, or ca 11,200 people. That could support a standing military of probably over 150, depending on composition etc - elite troops and cavalry are more expensive.

Cohort NPCs
Players can level up their Companion character PCs each time the PC levels up, using the electronic copies of the NPCs on the web page. Cerdic gets +6 hp/level. Jorah & Boulder +5 hp/level, Anaveth +4 hp/level. Everyone gets +1 to attacks & defences each level. Everyone gets +1 to damage every even-numbered level, Cerdic gets another +1 at levels divisible by 4. At 21st level they add another damage die to damage and gain an additional Encounter Power.
Initiative, Attribute Checks, and Skill Checks are calculated normally, +1 every even numbered level.
