Dapplegate was a large independent town in the Border Kingdoms.[1]

Geography[edit | edit source]

The town was located on the north-eastern border of Bedorn on the south shore of the River Scelptar.[1]

Government[edit | edit source]

Dapplegate was governed by a council of forty merchants. They held council in the Council Hall, a small keep located next to the Place of Arrows.[1]

Trade[edit | edit source]

Dapplegate was home to a wide variety of crafters. It's location made it a center for import/export businesses, importing trade goods from Calimshan and goods from across the Border Kingdoms were exported from the town's large port district.[1]

The Place of Arrows was the large central marketplace of Dapplegate. It was surrounded by a ring of eight ponds, which were themselves surrounded by a waist-high wall and was used by the merchants as water holes for their draft animals.[1]

Defenses[edit | edit source]

The north bank of the River Scelptar, and the marshes between Dapplegate and the Shining Sea, were populated by Lizardfolk and Mudmaws. Therefore, there was a large demand for hired guards for merchant barges and caravans, and more than six mercenary companies bases were located in the town.[1]
