The standard designation for settlements on the Frontier. This is probably similar to the Japanese system, where the designation of "village", "town", or "city" is based on population size. When a village was formed, a stone monument with the community’s name and the date of its founding was always erected at its center. It was the life of the village, so to speak—some might even call it the place’s soul. A special day usually takes place in every village in remembrance of the raising of this stone called Wall Raising Day.
