- City Name: Enasrrrkw (Three Quarrelsome Daughters)
- Classification: Rural Town
- Location: Kashyyyk
- Affiliation: Kashyyyk
- Demographics: Consisting of wookiees with darker fur who have lived on the islands of Kashyyyk forthousands of years.
- Wealth: Low: Out fo the way and very remote, the village boasts a number of different fish, salves and plant life but mostly it stays to itself.
- Stability: Medium: Small and manageable compared to some other villages, the main wookiee families that live within it are united in their purpose of living within their islands.
- Description: Wooden huts and halls built upon floating sections. Able to move down the river and between the three islands in a chain. Some of it man made and some of it natural. The wookiee village is old but it is different then most, without the threat of the massive shadowlands where groups of dangerous creatures can develop it is key for them to keep moving and follow the food while it repopulates and grows in different areas. That is why they used the river itself to be the village and travel between the three islands that have been connected above with the massive trees. The design serves as a means of protection from the creatures in the waters and on the islands that can spread sickness but also from invaders and those coming towards the islands. It is made to have the village harder to find unless you know how to reach it.
POINTS OF INTEREST
River Homes: Linked together by small braided cords but mostly able to drift along as they want to. The homes and hall of the village serve to move around and unite the three islands.
Low: Designed without walls or artificial defenses, the village moves on the rivers and between the islands with wookiee warriors able to defend it if needed but the primary defense is the remote location of the village. The danger of the jungle like environment and the movement of the village makes it more difficult to reach.
Designed and built a long time ago, the village originally was three villages, that would quarrel over resources and from family disputes. The name of the islands was mostly something the mainland wookiee's called it since the clan that lived there bickered with each other like children. Never going into full scale wars but pestering and mostly just scrapping with each other as a family disagrees. So for centuries they lived mostly against and with each other as much as the creatures on the islands within the rivers and around them.
The villages though were actually is a great location, different fish and crabs coming from around them. Large eels, sharks, whales, schools and smaller groupings. They could collect them in abundance and trade or have stores for themselves. On land there were some manageable numbers of kinrath and other predators but also semi water based threads, crocodile like creatures that were in the more swampy like areas. Small fast swimming carnivorious fish that would strip the flesh from the bone.
Insects, butterflies, moths, mosquito's and other things were around the islands able to spread sickness to those who were unaware of them. Flesh eating sickness, heat exhaustion, puss filled larve under the skin of those who wandered onto the islands and who sought to try and enslave the wookiee's. A deterent to the likes of trandoshan's wanting slaves... but the quarrelsome daughters of kashyyyk still would argue with each other until something happened. There was a storm and two of the villages were destroyed.
The storm lasted for three days and wiped out two fo the villages, with family being more important then who overfished in this area or who might have taken these fruits... the third took them in but there wasn't enough room to last for all of them and so they made a decision and worked on it. Floating villages that would run a circuit through the islands, able to in the case of a storm rise with the water levels and avoid being destroyed. The data loss and plague served to make finding the village harder then it already was.
Other events over the centuries it was being lost to most of the galaxy and Kashyyyk came with the darkness but the wookiees worked to repopulate. marrying other families setting up better and more capable bases for their homes and small huts to trade with those who visited and house some of their equipment. The netherworld and plague had devastated their population but slowly they have been recovering from it and some exploration by a few of the silver jedi to the island has revealed the old isle of the three sisters.
