Legacy of Athalantar
Population: approx. 350, though over 1,000 in total are dependent on Daggerford’s market and goods.
The town takes its name from a 400-year-old legend about a boy named Tyndal who fended off a tribe of lizardfolk with only a dagger. The first community was built along the shores of the river at that spot. All the Dukes of Daggerford claim to be descended from Tyndal.
Until fifty years ago, Daggerford was controlled by a Duke. A town charter was granted by Duke Conan, and the Council of Guilds now controls the town. Attempting to imitate Waterdeep, the guildmasters wear masks of secrecy when conducting official government business, but their identities are public knowledge.
The current Duke of the region is Pwyll Greatshout (sometimes called Pwyll Daggerford).
