The game's physical setting is centered around the small town of Tamarack Falls and the city of Fort Brunsett.
Tamarack Falls has a reputation as a country backwater, a poor cousin, a failed provider which refuses to give up. It still provides some local lumber, and there are the occasional grumblings about reopening the local mine, but those never get too much traction. It's locally known for being a bit queer, what with the loopy Lefevres and all, but most folks ascribe that to the murders some fifty years back. Others know better.
Fort Brunsett, on the other hand, is a small, but slowly growing city, caught between the small-town values of its antecedents and the metropolitan ideals of its dreams. Located in the general vicinity of Stowe, it gets much of its money from tourism, thanks to the ten mile lake along its northern border, and the shipping of goods downriver. Despite its best efforts, there is a fair amount of decay in the industrial district, both genteel and...less genteel. Crime is rising.
