Rise of the Runelords
A small agricultural and fishing town situated on the northern banks of Lake Syrantula at the mouth of the Skull River. It was founded over a century ago by Ilsur, a former First Sword of the Knights of Aroden, and his followers, all of whom were dissatisfied with the direction Korvosa took during the Chelaxian civil war. The town has stubbornly maintained its independence from both Korvosa to its east and Magnimar to its west. It has a reputation as insular and unfriendly to outsiders.
