Elmwood is a small farming community located on the southern shores of the Moonsea. This tranquil place is loosely ruled by its constable, Thoyana Jorgadaul, a shield dwarf adventurer retired here due to a respiratory disease.[1] It is home to woodcutters and fishermen, a waystop for ships and adventurers passing by; the place is neutral and the people keep to themselves, protected both by their isolation and the fact that here there is little worth taking by force.[2][3]

History

Elmwood was founded in the the Year of the Screeching Vole (163 DR) as a waystop for ships from and to the River Lis[1].

Trade

The Docks, the busiest part of the village, is located on the northern area of Elmwood; it is made by a series of wooden docks and piers where both the village's and the passing merchant boats moor. Near the Docks, three robust structures made by oak and brick are used as warehouses.

Elmwood's merchant area is located in the center of the village: the Grange, run by Tayrom Onetry, a wood and stone emporium where a trader can find (or request) nearly everything (except for armor and weapons). The local inn, Still Waters, is located on the eastern part of the village and is run by master brewer Enrad Daleborn[1].

Temples

The village temple is The Temple of the Half-moon, dedicated to Selune and run by Alamarayne Moonray, a beautyful half-elf woman of moon elf stock, and a close friend to Thoyana Jorgadaul. South of Elmwood, hidden amidst the trees, is a druid's grove dedicated to Eldath and tended by the druid Ezril Treewarder[1].

Other locations

South of Still Waters, near the southeastern edge of the village, lies the Old Well, an old stone well, dried long time ago, that leads to an underground, monster infested area of Elmwood[1].
