As they approach the town, it is quite clearly devoid of all life... though for how long is unclear. The condition of the various buildings is very good, and the roads are still in reasonably useable condition. There are probably somewhere in the area of thirty buildings in this place.
In the main square of the little town, there is a somewhat plain fountain that is still running at the intersection of the two main roads that divide the little town into four parts. The various buildings don't have doors but do have doorways, and they don't have shutters but they do have windows, giving the whole village a generally open-air feel.
The village itself is extremely clean and well-ordered, all of the buildings being roughly the same size and made of the same off-white material. Nothing that looks like it could have been a merchant's stall or a vendor's cart is there.
It is, quite honestly, a very boring place. The only movement is coming from the running water of the fountain, which makes a light splashing sound as it pours into the basin of the fountain and is then lost to the plumbing below.
The road that the group took into the town leads westward, back to the forest. To the north is what appears to be an open meadow, to the east is the river they spied earlier, and to the south is a road that goes out of the sight of the adventurers.
A new feature is visible from here, though. A clear lake is what is feeding the river. There doesn't seem to be anything interesting about the lake from where they are, though.
As Damian and Chantelle travel along the southeast path, they soon encounter a clearing that opens into a large, rolling field with what looks like a man-sized monument in the middle. The road they're on right now leads to something that looks like a small Acropolis, or an open-air temple. There's also a strange tower directly to the south-east off of the road with no visible entrance from this side.
(Klaus, Winfred, and Molokidan are now in The Village Square, and Chantelle and Damian are at Forest: Southeast Entrance.)
