Berdusk was known as the Jewel of the Vale as it sat on both the Uldoon Trail and the River Chionthar in Sunset Vale. Twilight Hall was located here, making the city the base of many operations for Harpers in the west and the north.[4] A person from Berdusk was known as a Berduskan.[5]

History[]

Long before Berdusk was founded two other settlements stood in its placement. The first was an elven moot hall, the second a human fishing village.[3] The city was named for a local human warrior, Berdusk Orcslayer, whose driving out of orcs from the Sunset Vale made it safe to establish settlements the area.[3]

In the Year of Shadows, 1358 DR, the High Sun riot erupted in Berdusk due to food shortages in the city. The local bakery was burned down, and the baker's daughter was tragically killed by the crown.[6]
