Tearing of the Weave
Berdusk (Large City, 20,242): The Jewel of the Vale occupies a fortuitous position astride both the Uldoon Trail from Amn and the River Chionthar. The city has an age-old reputation as a place for trade and for peace parleys, a status encouraged by its current administrator, the High Lady Cylyria Dragonbreast (NG female human). Cylyria is one of the leaders of the Harpers, whose most powerful base, Twilight Hall, stands beside the town’s temple to Deneir. The Harpers use Berdusk as their base of operations in the West and the North.
Lady Cylyria keeps the city firmly in the Lords’ Alliance and uses her influence to temper the strictly profit-minded policies of the city’s rivals in Iriaebor and Seornubel. The Harpers were quick to take advantage of Darkhold’s weakened grip on its territory in the Far Hills, but they are simultaneously concerned about the subtle rise in the Red Wizards’ influence upon the affairs of the west.
