The Ashen Coast
A fishing town and trading port on the east coast of one of the many islands just off the eastern shore of the Ashen Coast, Estling recently fell prey to a fresh pirate raid which saw almost the entire waterfront burned to ash.
Many of the towns merchants have either fled, or are in the process of doing so, seeing little point in remaining while the town is barely a shell of it’s former self.
Yet there is hope. Despite more than half the fishing fleet being naught but charcoal on the harbour bottom, and the wharves being blackened stumps, three of the most powerful and wealthy players have chosen to remain, and to rebuild. Orys the Lip, a halfelf with a harelip, Duelan Erkson, a dwarven trader specialising in bulk goods, and Enthar Gorassi, a drow who deals mostly in luxury items – and according to rumour, other, darker things.
The three have already drawn up plans to rebuild large chunks of the waterfront, confident that the town will recover in time.
