The Village of Swarthmore is a low-population village, of about 250 people, located on the outskirts of Lutia.
The soil around the village is especially fertile, producing not only an unprecedented number of crops, but also crops with significantly accelerated growth. It is likely that magical effects play a role in their growth.
The reason for Swarthmore's exceptionally fertile soil is indeterminate. Studies from the Ecology Department of the Jeuno National College have found a moderately powerful magical influence penetrating through all of the village's nearby soil, but have not been able to identify the source of this magical power.
