Description: by Rikard Prospero

Cimarron is mostly dry grasslands and farmland with the occasional forest and hilly area. The soil is not very fertile, and compared to the other baronies, could almost be considered a desert. The fauna that does manage to survive are stunted compared to most other plants.

Cimarron is well known for its rowdy gauchos and the fact that almost everyone carries a wheellock pistol. The inhabitants are fiercely independent and prefer to let everyone to take care of themselves and not get involved in other people's business.

Smokestone City is known for its saloons and gambling halls, as well as the rowdy crowds such establishments attract. The most popular establishment of that sort is the Red Steel Saloon; people claim that at least one showdown (duel with wheellocks) occurs in front of the saloon every day.
