Beregost (pronounced: /ˈbɛɑːrɛgstBEAR-eh-gost[1]) was a town on the Coast Way, halfway between Baldur's Gate and Amn. It was a popular stop for many visiting merchant caravans, especially those en route to Waterdeep in the north or to the Sea of Fallen Stars in the east.[3]

Government[edit | edit source]

In 1368 DR while Beregost's offical government was a five-person town council, in reality, the town was run by the governor, Kelddath Ormlyr, who is also the high priest of Song of the Morning a major temple to Lathander.[3] By 1372 DR, Beregost was recorded as having no "official government", though Most Radiant Ormlyr was still in charge.[2] It was policed by the guards from the temple,[3] as well as Flaming Fist from Baldur's Gate.[citation needed]

History[edit | edit source]

Beregost began as a small farming village, established some time after 1026 DR to support the school of magic run by the wizard Ulcaster, on the opposite side of the Coast Way.[4][3] The school was destroyed in 1106 DR by Calishite mages and only the ruins remained.[5][2] Tales of ghosts that haunted the school's ruins caused the town to develop further on the west side of the Coast Way, leaving the hills east open for livestock.[3]

Despite the loss of the school, and the worldly travelers it could bring, the settlement of Beregost thrived, growing into a large town and an important trading center.[6]
