The Stockwood Scrolls
The town of Greenest is the largest in the Greenfields region of the Western Heartlands, and from its settlement just over a century and a half ago it has grown into a thriving community. Greenest is the only town of any size along the Uldoon Trail, the most direct road between the eastern cities of the Dragon Coast, Cormyr, and Sembia with the Coast Way running south to the great cities of Amn, Tethyr, and far Calimshan. The trade caravans passing through ensure the town keeps running.
Inside the wooden palisades is a welcoming town bisected by a shallow stream. The majority of the town’s buildings are built close to the stream’s shore, and are overseen by a keep situated on a small hill in the centre of town.
The town runs on the gold brought by trade caravans passing through, and the merchants and townsfolk thrive here under the leadership of Governor Nighthill. The Governor is a human man of sixty years who oversees the towns operation at the behest of the townsfolk, having been elected seven years ago. He’s seen as pragmatic and trustworthy, having built a reputation as a former adventurer.
Centred in the fertile rolling hills of the Greenfields, the most commonly worshipped deity in Greenest is Chauntea, the Earthmother. The region is polytheistic however, as elsewhere in Faerûn, and although the only large temple in Greenest is devoted to Chauntea, people say their private prayers to many gods.
