Gregory Eckson came from a long line of adventurers. As far back as his family history went they were sword slingers and dragon slayers and Gregory was no different. As a 10th level Fighter Gregory was considering retiring and found the perfect opportunity for a "last hurrah" when he was hired to slay the orcs inhabiting a keep on the outskirts of the land.
He took the job, killed the orcs and after speaking with the local lord agreed to decline payment for the job in return for the ability to call the keep and the surrounding land his own. Gregory spent some of his "nest egg" of adventurer money refurbishing the small keep and used his most precious family heirloom, a Lyre of Building, to make any needed repairs to the building. Looking out at the surrounding land he saw forests, a river, and much farm-ready soil. The Lord that Gregory made a deal with would soon send some small number of initial families to inhabit the county, and then it would be up to Gregory to ensure the future success of the town on his own.
