Forgotten Realms - The Northlands and Beyond
Leilon is a small mining town that serves as a convenient resting place for weary travelers on the High Road between Neverwinter and Waterdeep. The Leilon military, known as the Lances of Leilon is composed of as many as 200 warriors. In times of need, citizens are incorporated into the militia.
Leilon is a member in good standing with the Lords’ Alliance due to the efforts of its leader Lord Pelindar Filmarya. Trade via sea is dangerous since the nearby shore is a shallow mudflat and the method used to transfer cargo from ships at sea to the land is very risky (consisting of a series of magically reinforced barges which are poled out to meet the boats whereupon cargo is transferred via rickety cranes that are impossible to use in high winds). Instead of relying on this form of trade, most of Leilon’s imports come via caravan out of Waterdeep. Despite the high quality of law and order in the town, there have long been rumours of both the Cult of the Dragon and the Zhentarim operating within its walls.
