[Icemule Trace, Town Center]

The center of the slumbering frontier town is overseen by the broken ice statue of a mule, which rises from the surrounding snow on a plinth of cold dark stone. The stars' brilliance winks through the ice, casting prismatic glints of light over a scattering of halflings. Some chatter quietly by a colorful silver-bound barrel emblazoned with a row of tiny grey penguins, while others stargaze on colorful cloaks spread out across the hard ground. Near the comfort of a smooth dark stone bench, a roaring bonfire crackles merrily, lending its warmth and illumination to the surroundings. You also see a fickle marsh spirit that is flying around, a massive snowy battle-scarred lynx, an amber-eyed tawny range wolf, a crackling lightning wyrdling, a pale-faced coppery barn owl that is flying around, a fat ginger cat, the hammered silver Meliyara disk, a resplendent obsidian black raven that is flying around, a peak snowcat, a maddened luck spirit that is flying around, a sapphire-eyed pale golden margay, a delusive mountain spirit that is flying around, a raven that is flying around, a stormy grey lynx, the ghoul-shaped Ragz disk, the Opalina disk, the Falvicar disk, the Neovik disk, a gangly black and tan dobrem, the Khazaann disk, the red Nairena disk, the Svardin disk, an irritable glacier spirit that is flying around, a massive snowy white tiger, the Gorbo disk, the Katiesa disk, the Mohrgan disk, a blue-eyed midnight black wolf, the fiery red Sabotage disk, a blue wolf that is sitting, a green-eyed orange chinchilla, the Raiyner disk, a blue and white pavilion, a blued steel wastebin and obvious signs of someone hiding.
