Parm (パルム) , also known as Parm, the Spinning Town (紡績町パルム), is a town in the Sutherland Province, Erebonia. It flourished through its wool cultivation and spinning workshops.

Background

Orbal shutdown

When the Aureole caused the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon in February S.1203, the entirety of Liberl and southernmost parts of the Sutherland Province, including Parm, faced a total black-out of orbal technology.

Around this mid-winter period - which happened to be milder than the average winter - all orbal devices, such as lightning, communications and heaters, suddenly stopped working. For a week, Parm's inhabitants resorted on their trustworthy waterwheel technology while seeking support from the now-Provincial Army of Sutherland.

The 3rd Armored Division, commanded by Lieutenant General Zechs Vander, used remodelled steam tanks to march from the Dreknor Fortress to Parm. They provided shelters for its citizens and moved on to the Titus Gate to march onto Liberlian territory. After their attempt to intimidate and infiltrate the kingdom proved to be futile, the Armored Division once again withdraws to Parm.

Parm - Waterwheels (Sen III)

Waterwheel technology has been around in Erebonia since S.900 - S.1000. While virtually all imperial cities and town have shifted to exclusively orbal technology, Parm's insistence on waterwheels proved to be useful during the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon in S.1203, when Liberl and the southern regions of Erebonia had all appliances with orbal technology shut down.
