Fratchwood is a town on the Altiplano Express Line in between Seven Bangs and Fustic Wells. The principal local industries are woodworking and furniture making, and this is celebrated in the holiday of Kindling Day, held in the month of Ember. The local pub is the Woodcutter's Arms, where it is reputed that what with the forest of Skund being (occasionally) nearby, beds made from Skund wood will seek to be helpful to the sleeper by gently rocking you to sleep.
