A small city on the north shore of Lauredor.
An isolated city on the North coast of The Mire, Tal is a stopover for ships heading East from Wizard's Isle.
The city of Tal is largely self-sufficient, as there are no large settlements within a week's sail or many week's ride.
Tal's most famous feature is the Horn of Warning. An enormous horn carved out of a single piece of ivory, the horn is used to warn the population of impending attack. The horn is semi-sentient, and issues the warning itself!
Most of Tal's buildings have tile roofs, crafted from the clay brought from The Mire. The pottery of Tal is exported to the Selentine Empire, the cities on the Landsplit River, and Wizard's Isle. The potters of Tal even ship their goods to Gunthang, to trade with the elves of the Dark Forest. Thus far, Tal has not suffered any attacks by the elves, and they strive to keep relations calm.
