"Cut south off the Eastway after the trees thin out, n' keep walking...that'll be Good Mead."
  — Beorne Steelstrike

Good Mead was one of the smaller of the Ten Towns of Icewind Dale.[1] It sat on the northwestern shore of Redwaters, south of the Eastway trade road.[2][4]


Two roads extended out from Good Mead, one that went southwest to Dougan's Hole and another one northeast to Easthaven.[2]


While Good Mead's economy was originally based on the fishing of knucklehead trout from nearby Redwaters lake, by the mid—14th century DR they received little profit from their catches. As a whole, the town focused on brewing their famous mead,[2][5] that they sold in the merchant town of Bryn Shander.[6]


For many years, Good Mead and Dougan's Hole enjoyed a healthy rivalry with each other.[2]

Notable LocationsEdit

  • Mead Hall: This large building, in the center of town, was the heart of its brewing-based economy.[2][5]
  • Shrine to Tempus: This worn-down and aged shrine was run by the young battleguard, Brother Sharamod during the mid—14th century, who hoped to expand it to a proper temple.[2][5]
