Storied Languard--capital of Ashlar and its greatest city--stands hard against Hard Bay's turbulent, stormy waters. To the north lies the Mottled Spire's brooding spray-drenched mass, the curse-haunted ruins of Greystone and Gloamhold's doom-wreathed halls. Ashlar's greatest--indeed only--city, Languard is a noisy, dirty place. Here, amid broad, muddy streets teeming with life and shadow-mantled, danger-filled alleyways there is little beneath the sun that cannot be had somewhere--for a price.
Few Languardians overly concern themselves with the brooding terrors lurking within Gloamhold's halls, but for others, the legendary, benighted ruin draws them to Languard as a moth to a flame. For within Languard's stout walls live, plot and scheme a surprising number of adventurers, freebooters and mercenaries all lured here by the treasures said to lie but a scant few miles to the north.
