Winterthorn is a large medieval themed settlement in a snow covered land surrounded by water on most sides.

The town is also forever celebrating Christmas, with candy canes, snowmen and other decorations that can be seen around the town.

Buildings

Guard Towers

Spread around the settlement are tall towers where archers guard over the city. They are also a great way to access the rooftops and see the city from higher up.

Barracks

The Barracks is where archers are trained before taking up spots in the guard towers. The building itself has four guard towers, one in each corner. Most of the town's weapons are also located here.

Wishing Well

One of the small details in Winterthorn, a wishing well where players can toss in a coin and make a wish. Some say half of the town's diamonds are in the bottom of these wells. The entire town is also built mostly on top of lakes, giving the wells a large supply of water.

Central Market

Center of the city, decorated with a large Christmas tree in the middle of four circular buildings with towers. Inside the center are few market stalls and public chests under more trees where people can leave presents. It often snows greatly in this area of the city, so snowmen are a common sight.

Clock Tower

The tallest tower in the city, it rises higher than any guard tower for all to see the time. Under the clock tower is a tunnel coming out of the central market going to Riot Castle and the outer market.

Riot Castle

Named after getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot, this castle is mostly towers connected to each other, most of which overlook the outer marketplace.

Outer Market

A much larger market than the central market, this area is where most of the town's stalls and trades are located. Also being right outside the clock tower it allows people to keep track of the time they spend here easily.
In the market area there is also a statue built that looks towards some of the stalls with the north-east forest behind it.

Confectionery

Built by getplayerhead.sh?Draglide12&16.png Draglide12, this building sells sweets and chocolates near the outer market.

East Harbour

The east harbour, where the town's fishing ships go out and gather food which to sell at the town market. A boat route is currently being planned to go from Winterthorn's harbour to the nearest warp NewVenice, which will increase the city's trading.

The Santa Maria

A larger ship used for exploring the nearby waters, planning boat routes and transporting goods from out of the city.

Emerald Concur

A trading ship delivering goods and resources to Winterthorn.

Trading Center

Stocked with goods from the Emerald Concur's journeys, this is where materials are stored before entering the town markets.

North-East Forest

This forest was once cut down to produce the wood used to make most of the town's rooftops and frames. It has been replanted several times as to keep the wood supply up, and to give the city a nice garden area.

Blacksmith

The city's simple blacksmith. Very close to the Barracks so they can get a easy supply of weapons and training gear.

Welcome Building

Located between the Barracks and Blacksmith so any unwelcome guests can be removed. This is where players enter the town using the Nexus system, they are invited further into the town with bright green and red Christmas colors and decorations.

West Outpost

The west outpost is a small area surrounded by cliffs. The buildings here were the first ones in Winterthorn, and the original center of the town until citizens found the east harbour and decided to build closer to it.

Farmer's House

A small house where farmers keep crops and plants inside.
Nexus Portal and tunnel pathway to Iron Reef under the house.

Town Hall

One of the larger buildings in the city, the town hall is located between the north-east forest and the east harbour. It has the biggest inside room in the entire city, and one of the tallest roofs. In here important citizens of the city discuss future plans and have large dinners with the finest fish from the harbour.

Old City Bar

The oldest tavern in town, tucked away at the very south tip of the city. It serves a variety of food and drinks and is frequented by many residents. Outside is a small memorial to the moderator Witchy1000 who built the tavern and sadly passed away in 2021.

Northern Lighthouse

This lighthouse is a shining beacon for any ships coming in from the north. It is currently maintained and inhabited by the Lightkeeper getplayerhead.sh?ScarClaw72&16.png ScarClaw72.

Evergreen Stage

Constructed at the tail end of 2019, this stage would go on to be used during the Evergreen concert. In the days since, it has become publicly accessible for residents to use.

Jessica's Lake (Ice Rink)

This frozen lake is a popular spot for ice skaters. It has decorations hanging above and a toolshed over to the side. While not the official owner, it is colloquially known as "Jessica's Lake" as it's located directly west of Jessica's Cafe. A small Tridge also overlooks the lake and is a popular spot to watch from.

Jessica's Cafe

Run by the old-timer Jessica, her Cafe has a long history in Winterthorn and is a partner of the Western Waters Shipping Co.

Eastside Apartments

This apartment complex is located in the northeast corner of Winterthorn and tincludes four units.
