Shadows of Taren
The manufacturing center of Taren, the industrial plants and assembly lines of Stillmill (corruption of ʺsteel millʺ) turned out not only refined materials but also finished goods. When the markets dried up, many plants were shut down and their machinery left to rust. A number of old factories have been purchased by foreign investors, while others have been repurposed and renovated as shopping centers, offices, apartment units, and so forth. And a few new companies have taken over old plants, and started the mills rolling again.
