So after searching through my piles of papers i found my 3.5 module that i was working on. I've got pretty much the first 5 levels mapped out most of which take place in a dungeon. Wafterfall village looks (in my mind) kind of like this
with the exception of the airship. Not that they don't exist they just wouldn't be found for any normal reason at the village.
The major near by city of Vanguard
Near by keep that was abandoned years ago
Basic plot. A wizard by the name of Cypher sent hordes of creatures across the lands. Cypher pillaged and looted and stole what he could for his own amusement. 10 years ago it's rumored that a great warrior was able to climb the tower of anguish (Cypher's base of operations). A massive 100 story tower and was able to kill Cypher. This warrior's name is unknown but that doesn't stop fame seekers from trying to claim being responsible for killing the legendary monster.
The local city of vanguard was fortified with thick stone walls and guard towers posted around the perimeter of the entire city. They local king fell ill shortly before the war ended and has rarely been seen since. There are rumors that he is dead but the occasional semi public viewing from his window quickly stifles those rumors.
The Village of Waterfall is a peasant farming village that has is very much a community effort to keep it running. There are a few warriors that help protect the area as well as tend to the farming. Dredge is the village elder, kind of a senile old man, once a powerful wizard now can barely make potions.
The Abandon keep was used as a military outpost. It was over run during the war with Cypher and the King from Vanguard has little to no interest in reclaiming the keep.
That's about all I want to get into at the moment. I have a lot more but rather than typing for hours I'll just leave it at this for now.
