Hommel Lane

Hommel Lane gets its name from a famous sea captain, Haffron Hommel, who had an illustrious career fighting pirates and the forces of Chaos in the border isles during the height of the Empire's power. His career came to an abrupt end, however, when he was captured by pirates and forced to walk along a game trail from the edge of Halfmoon Bay (a pirate haven at the time) to the cliffs where the keep now stands. There the pirates hurled him to his death. The path he walked is now said to be the road through the center of the village, which becomes the Near Downs Road and winds up to the keep and the Beacon House.
