Flatta is the hamlet that neighbors the House in the Highlands. It is where the family shops for supplies and ingredients and is a source of significant plot points. The hamlet is a small settlement in the Nanterre province and is a fiefdom under the rule of Governor Golder.
Background[edit | edit source]
Pre-History[edit | edit source]
Knowledge of Flatta's history before Azusa's arrival is vague, at best. Little is known about the hamlet's history before this point, though for as long as can be remember, it has always been a peaceful village.
Present History[edit | edit source]
Notable Features[edit | edit source]
Like any other settlement, Flatta is home to various prominent features, both visible and invisible.
Town Hall[edit | edit source]
Likely situated within the center of the village, the town hall is the center of the hamlet's bureaucracy. Not a lot is known about the building, but it's known there is a visitor's lounge, reception, and high-quality bedrooms for when aristocracy visits.
Azusa's Magic Barrier[edit | edit source]
As a precautionary measure against any evil minded individuals wishing to cause harm against Azusa as a result of her sudden fame. A magic barrier that specifically targeted people with corrupted hearts was erected around the village. As expected, it immediately incapacitates any individuals wishing to do evil, though every time it is triggered, it needs to be recast. It can also deflect magical attacks.
Culture[edit | edit source]
Given it's small size, the culture of Flatta is largely homogeneous. Resembling a Swiss built town, the town is very peaceful, and has not been attacked since long before Azusa arrived. The town has a variety of stores dedicated to various kinds of produce, as well as restaurants and taverns.
Traditions[edit | edit source]
Despite having more than a three hundred year long history, the yearly traditions and other aspects of the hamlet's culture are unknown. However, a village dance is celebrated yearly, which began forty-nine years after Azusa's arrival at the village. During the festival, stores that sell unique goods are set up. Notably, a day before the two-hundred and fifty-second celebration of the festival, the Great Witch Cafe operated for business on that day only. It proved to be incredibly popular with the village folk, as well as others outside of Flatta's sphere, much that the staff was overburdened wit the demand.
