Band of Brothers
Millers Crossing is a small settlement of Erie along the River Running, most significant for the presence there of the Highwater Ferry, the only reliable way to cross the River Running within 30 klicks. Another prominent business is Buck Mill, where most of the local grain farmers bring their harvests to be ground into flour. The majority of inhabitants live on the eastern bank (where the mill is) in a spread out community of farmers and associated industries. Merchant caravans pass through the small village on their way downriver to Hawthorne or on their way across the river to points inland.
