[Icemule Trace, Town Center]
The bustling town comes together in this square. Halflings dressed in varying fashions stand about, some chattering happily, others reclining on cloaks laid on the ground. One ancient halfling leans against the base of the large ice statue of a mule, snoring blissfully. A feeling of community pervades the area, putting you immediately at ease.
Obvious paths: north, south, east, west.

This statue must be 15 feet tall, which is a considerable height given the ones that made it. Carved from ice likely brought from the glacier is a huge mule, feet set in a posture of stubborn immobility and an obstinate look on its face. You cannot help but chuckle at the thought of someone attempting to lead a mule in this mood somewhere.

Xulia says, "understatement"

Alyxandrah asks, "What happened?"

Xulia says, "blood is drippin off it"
