Kenby is an old village that was long held by the Percy family. The line of this family ended in the year 8150 F.R., when the Lord of Lust slew the last Lord of the family for treason. The village passed into the hands of the Lord of Sin, and thus into the hands of Lord Mayor Naglor of Dragonspur, he gave it as a fief to Lord Bartarius. The village produces an income for its Lord of about 150 silver pieces per year if managed properly.
As far as settlements go, Kenby is fairly representative of typical villages in Kelerak. It is so small that it only has one Tavern (The Copper Cup), and no Inn or General Store. Any visitors must stay with one of the residents. The inhabitants live a simple life, farming, fishing, hunting, and working. Most have never been to the great metropolis of Dragonspur, a mere 16 miles away, and most never want to go. Instead, they look forward to feastdays and Southday worship in the village's small chapel of Heshtail. The Abbot of the temple, Gilden Ack-Gilbert, is always a good conversationalist. Although life is difficult and they are not lucky enough to be blessed with a priest of Bestra to make life easier, the simple fact they are at least temporarily free from the Dark Occupation and the Lord of Lust makes them rejoice in what they have. They may complain about paying their taxes, and they may be subject to the occasional orc raid or wandering monster, but all in all, they know they have it better than many folk these days.
