He Who Fights Monsters
Our humble little town
Jonesboro is an interesting town chockfull of interesting people, and there’s no end to the strange happenings that occur in this growing town. Its population has just reached 10,000 folks, but it still has the feel of a small midwestern town.
Miles of cornfield and farmland border Jonesboro to the north, south, and east. To the west is Creakwidow Woods, a small forest that has amazingly been untouched by agriculture or industry. Beyond the woods is the the city of Pawnee, home to the University of Southwestern Illinois, known for the work of its archaeology department.
Protecting Jonesboro are the fine folks of the Jonesboro Police Department who operate under a sheriff to make sure the good townspeople are safe. They’ve got a reputation for being a little…overzealous in their duties, but they get the job done and that’s all that matters.
On the north side of town are the schools (elementary, middle, and high school), though a few families on the west side of town have decided for their kids to go to school in Pawnee. No idea why they would, seeing as education in Jonesboro is just fine.
