The area in which the majority of our campaign will take place, and an area familiar to most of your characters.
On the north shore of the Moonsea, bordering Thar, you can find Melvaunt. West of the Border Forest is the Anauroch desert, better known as the Great Sand Sea, over which Slegna traveled from his homeland in Mithral Hall. Bordering the southern shore is the forest of Cormanthor, home to the Elven Court of the Cormanthyr Empire, where you will find the two elves Aerndin & Arcadian originate. Even further south (across the Sea of Fallen Stars, in fact) you will find Chondalwood, origin of the ghostwise caravan and it’s native JessaKat. From parts unknown come the others, Gaffgarion, Darnell Seishun, and the like.
