Rise of the Runelords
Though it is not a new settlement, the town of Wartle remains something of a frontier trading post, primarily populated by swampers and trappers who do not mind the inhospitable environment. The buildings of the town rise out of the murky swamp water on stilts, connected by wooden boardwalks. Major exports of the town are peat, fungus, and furs, mostly sent down the Yondabakari River to Magnimar. The town sports a few successful brothels and a precariously tilted tavern called the Lean-To, which serves a local liquor called Bog Grog, which is an herbal moonshine somewhere between absinthe and a wheat beer. Disgusting though that may sound, Bog Grog actually works its way into the hearts of many travellers, and some in Magnimar have actually started to import the stuff, though straining out the chunks is usually required for such export efforts.
As well as the Lean-To there is also a General Store, a Blacksmith, a Baker and a tanner/chandler.
Wartle was taken under Magnimarian control in 4611 AR.
