Fishing towns & villages are small settlements where the primary occupation is fishing. These towns are located on or near a body of water that contains fish (a lake, river, ocean, or swamp). They may contain dock networks, fish shambles, and dock areas. Fantasy fishing villages may be raft towns or shipwreck towns. They may feature giant skeletons of the fish or leviathans they have caught. The buildings of the town may be on stilts and they may have bridge systems or catwalks connecting the various buildings and locations of the town.
When designing fishing villages consider both the water element they are located on (oceans, lakes, or rivers) as well as the land region or terrain they may be located on or near (islands, fjords, sea stacks, etc.). Also consider the types of boats used by the inhabitants of this place and how they are moored at the village or town.
