This town is right in the middle of farming country. It is centred around its market, which serves the surrounding villages. On market days, it is bustling, right from the first hours of daylight. On other days, it is so quiet that it seems abandoned. Everyone is out in the fields.
If Lichgate is notable for anything, it is its ordinariness. This town has never produced any heroes, known any great legends or had especial trouble from monsters. Even its name has nothing to do with actual liches but only with a burial ground that lies nearby. There are border raids occasionally from roving bands of monstrous humanoids but most villages have those.
