Brindol is in the center of the Elsir Vale and the location where the Bear Claws started their adventures. There they set out on a quest to rescue the captured citizens of Brindol and also return the stolen artifacts from the Hall of Great Valor.
One of the largest settlements in the Vale, Brindol is a prosperous farming community and caravan stopover located along the Dawn Way on the south bank of the Elsir River. Orchards of apple and pear trees follow the river’s winding shores, while broad grain fields and farmlands surround the town for miles in all directions. Brindol is the home of Lord Aaron Jarmaath. His small keep and the city walls are the only fortifications of note this side of Dennovar (city 100 miles to east).
The city is almost completely surrounded by a 20 foot high wall of stone. The only stretch not protected by the wall is the section along the river that marks the city’s north boundary. The bridges cross the Elsir river and connect the city with the river’s far bank. The highest point in town is a hill nestled in the southeastern quadrant. A large well-built keep of stone surmounts this hill, its majestic towers rivaled by the presence of a nearby grand cathedral. Orchards of apple and pear trees follow the river’s winding shores, while broad grain fields and farmlands surround the town for miles in all directions.
