Fantasy Farmstead: Modern Benton Cove
Jay Higgs can’t stand his soul sucking cubicle job any longer when his grandfather dies, leaving the deed to a small property in the tiny, middle of nowhere Resort town of Benton Cove. Packed up with a business plan, his life savings, and a life path that doesn’t include four tiny walls and a stupid cat hanging from a tree branch, Jay makes his way to his new home.
Stardew Valley, meets a fantasy D&D-esk world, meets slice of life anime in this short story about life in a small town. The people who are stuck there, the people see it as salvation, and the people who simply come and go.

And a number of other more minor characters.
