Fawn is located on Serpent Isle. It appears in Ultima VII Part Two.

Description[edit]

The Streets of Fawn
Located north of the Knight's Forest and south of the Northern Forest, built inside a lagoon, stands Fawn, the city of Beauty.

The places of interest in Fawn are the Fawn Palace and the Temple of Beauty with its oracle. Outside the city, the Fellowship has erected their camp.

Fawn has everything a traveller needs. A provisioner, a tavern/inn, a healer and a clothier. Also there is a sleeping house outside the bridge towards the city, which is pulled up during the night. The city's economy lives on its huge fleet, which provides the city with everything needed. The currency of Fawn is called Filari, money which has little worth and lives more from its beauty.

History[edit]

The city was named after the city of Old Fawn on Sosaria by the emigrants from that area who had left for Serpent Isle, and in honor of Queen Fawn, legendary for her beauty. This also reflects in the architecture, which uses many light-colored materials such as white marble. The city dropped the Principle of Love very fast, instead worshiping the shallow belief in Beauty. Over the centuries this totally degenerated into pure narcissism with Fawn's people also becoming very superficial, starting to hate everything that did not fit into their ideal of beauty.

The Imbalance Storms however ruined the city, as the fleet was destroyed by the lightning. The last days of Fawn were eventful. The Avatar had discovered a conspiracy of high-up that held Lady Yelinda, the nominal ruler, powerless and ignorant, toppling the conspirators in the end. But the new rule was only short, when Mad Iolo came to Fawn. He killed next to all inhabitants while letting loose vermin and plague. This was the end of Fawn.

Lore[edit]

This unusual village is named after its original in Sosaria, which in turn is named for its founding queen. Lady Fawn, renowned for her lovely appearance, held beauty as the one true trait of value. In her honor, the town quickly adopted the same belief. Though Lady Fawn has since died, her rather superficial values continue on. A port town, Fawn's main sources of income are the various sea-based occupations, including ship building and fishing. The currency accepted in Fawn is called the Filari.
