Karas Novotnian's nephew, Barenddo Novotnian founded the town of Olfden in 4128 AR as the first lumber town in the Darkmoon Vale. From Olfden, Novotnian lumberjacks bundled together heavy loads of timber (mainly darkwood) and shipped them south to Oregent. In Oregent, sawmills owned by Lord Rakesclaw, cut the timber into lengths needed by the shipyards in Augustana. Once the timber was converted to lumber, it was loaded onto barges and towed to Almas and distant Augustana.
