One General background and corresponding birthplace.
• Geography – Desert – Dunesend
• Geography – Forest – Witchcross, Talar, or
The Westdeep – This dense forest grows in the narrow depression between the Stoneholm and Wyrmsmoke Mountains. A dangerous place, several tribes of xenophobic elves live here, and they do not take kindly to trespassers. Conflict between the loggers at Lantern and the elves has come close to open war, and it’s known that if the elves attack, the dwarves will be forced to respond.

• Geography – Mountains – Hammerfist Holds

• Geography – Urban – Brindol, Overlook or
Sayre – An artistic, monument-filled city built in a particularly beautiful valley. Sayre holds a university and a large number of artisans, making it a popular site for those who deal in either information or fine art. Most inhabitants are human, elf, eladrin, or halfling. Some dwarves also live in Sayre, although they tend to keep to themselves.

• Geography – Wetlands – Rhest, or
Ashenport – It stands a lonely vigil atop a remote shore, hunkered down against the terrible ocean storms. For most of the year, it sits alone, for trade in the region has decreased. If this were any other town, it would long since have been forgotten, or perhaps even abandoned. But this is no other village; here, the fish are plentiful, the crops grow and thrive despite the rocky soil. Here, the ocean offers up its riches willingly, like a bashful lover.
