Abandoned villages

They don't have a name tag, the houses are decayed, there is no village tree, huge rocks surround the area in which a new village community may settle.

The pond has vanished and a tree with bright red leaves is now growing on the hilltop, instead of the mystical gate several menhirs are flanking it.

On top of the hill you can now see a grave mound, with a little fir tree growing on it and a low campfire in front.
