Forgotten Realms - The Northlands and Beyond
Port Llast (formerly Grath’s Hold) stands on the High Road some thirty-five miles north of Neverwinter. It is a small town of 700 folk mainly known for its skilled stonecutters and excellent harbor – a small bay sheltered by a high, rocky spit, with a fine beach and inlet. The port is overlooked by cliffs on which boulder-hurling siege engines have been placed. Port Llast is ruled by a First Captain, and is closely allied to Neverwinter (largely for protection from Luskan, who desires a more southerly harbor for its warships).
The harbor is home to a twelve-boat fishing fleet, but two of the ships are in very poor repair. The inland of Port Llast’s prime mercantile enterprises are quarries on the coastal headlands just south of the village. Other than harborage or stonecutting, there is little else to recommend it to the traveler today, for it is a tense, suspicious place, always expecting treachery or attack from Luskan. The city is is ruled by First Captain Haeromos Dothwintyl, a retired stonemason.
