This generator creates the details for the many settlements that dot that mouse kingdoms. It's largely based on the Gloaming Lands settlement generator I wrote a while ago, with thematic mousey tweaks.
The intended use of this generator is in tandem with the Mausritter location generator. In that case, ignore the result of the "location" field and roll on the an appropriate landmark column to figure out the location of a settlement.
