Rivers Edge: A small town that lies in the southern part of the Barony and a crucial trading point. The town is split along a ridge that a river cuts through, the upper portion of the "Edge" is more influential, and the lower portion is more seedier. There are more docks and storage along the lower edge as well as businesses to cater to the river men.
There is a barge that operates out of River's Edge as well this is an important piece for it allows trade from the west to the east. To the west of the Barony is the Elven home of Cittreale and the Dwarven home of Hammerfall.

At the end of the year there are five days of holiday that take place, the last marking the New Year.
The solstice is a holiday observed usually on the 21st day of the sixth month and the 21st day of the 12th month. This day can be changed depending on what the learned men of the faith have to say.
There is one moon during the day it is referred to as Shauney, and during the night she is called Shuney. This dates back to a legend of two sisters who crossed some cultural lines and now are said to live on the moon but never can they see each other again.
The Hobbits of Berry Grove are industrious, inventive and very sturdy folk. They have fought off attacks from a variety of different humanoids and when pushed into a fight they fight are very dangerous. They are also a fun loving people who enjoy a good wine or spirit, they adore good cooking and of course nothing goes with either of those than a good story and a pipe.
There are a good six or seven families that make up the population of Berry Grove and over the years of course they have mixed but they are proud of their family past. With this in mind there is a guild of sorts, called the Berry Grove Seekers, these hobbits leave the Grove and search for treasure lost from hobbits over the years. The hobbits that become involved in the Seekers are a cut above other hobbits having skills and abilities that they can use while out looking for lost hobbit treasure.
There is a myth of a lost Hobbit City, this has been the focus of many of the Seeker expeditions, NOW the one thing the Seekers won't do is steal. IF they find something that can be traced to the original owner they will do everything that they can to try and get it back to the owner or a descendant if possible. This is a great point of honor for them, and if they are ever compared to a Thieves Guild...let's just say that any wines or spirits destined for that party might not taste the best until a formal apology is given.
