A town that lies on the road that runs from Waterdeep to Silverymoon. It is on the north edge of the large plain to the north of Waterdeep, lying at the foot of rough hills further to the north and east. It is generally considered the northernmost reach of Waterdeep’s sphere of influence, though the city’s general influence extends much further.
Positioned as it is, it offers a variety of services designed to promote caravans and trade. There are large inns, caravanserai and stables, as well as warehouses. There is also a fur exchange and lumberyards that process material coming from the Kryptgarden to the west. There is an ancient ruin nearby, and tales of it’s haunt are common enough among the locals, but that doesn’t seem to stop people from visiting it, at least by daylight.
