The village of Flat Rock takes its name from a prominent, albeit small, roughly ovoid formation of black marble. The landmark has no natural cause and no geographical reason to exist in the area. The people of Flat Rock are unassuming, hospitable and polite. They harvest enough for themselves and to ensure a planting and breeding season for the next year for most things. The one exception to that rule is their communal harrigar farm that uses the namesake landmark of the town as an anchor.
