Map of Eveningstar in Cormyr - Forgotten realms
The Lonesome Tankard inn

01 - The Lonesome Tankard


This used to be the most visited, famous for its warm and somewhat rustic interior, great ale and hearty foods, as well as the original base for the Knights of Myth Drannor. But sadly after the last war, the owner Dunman Kiriag went home to find that the building had suffered badly under the goblin attack and that someone had managed to find the gold he had saved over the years leaving him without funds for the repairs.

But as luck would have it the crown needed a place to house 150 Purple Dragons while they scour the land of the remaining goblins and orcs, so Dunman made a deal allowing them to use his Inn, as long as needed and in return they would make the needed repairs.

So now Dunman caters to the soldiers in the inn prober, but still sells his famous ale out the kitchen window in the back, to people remembering the good old days.

Eveningstar Hall

02 - Eveningstar Hall

Government building

Eveningstar Hall is the only government building in the town. It serves as the office for Lord Tessaril Winter, has her herald, Tzin Tzummer and the town clerk and purser Auldo Morim.

It also contains the town's meeting hall, barracks for visiting Purple Dragons, and a jail. The jail, although not normally needed much aside from keeping a local for safekeeping while he sleeps off one to many, contains one cell that has been warded against teleportation magic where a spellcaster can be shackled, gagged and bound.

Ruldo Stables

03 - Ruldo Stables


Ruldo Stables is the largest stable in Eveningstar, owned by Ladian Ruldo and operated by him and his 2 daughters.

Ruldo Stables provides all manner of services and goods for horses and other mounts, including buying, selling, and renting horses and ponies and even stabling exotic beasts for adventurers who manage to capture them.

Ruldo Stables is actually split into two locations: the northern stables (#3 on the map) on the Market Square, across the street from the Lonesome Tankard, and the southern stables (#30 on the map), near Ladian's home along the Starwater.

Doing the war he rejoined the Purple Dragons and even after being released from service continued to serve the Crown by providing care and stabling for their mounts. (for a fee mind you)

Ruldo normally has a few mounts for sale, most often 1-2 riding horses and 1-3 ponies, both normally from local hardy breeds

Eveningstar - Market Square

04 - Market Square

The Market Square is prime real estate surrounding public land used to host festivals, fairs, and the weekly farmer's market, which is the main source of social interaction for most Evenor.

Most of the Eveningstar produce such as wine, parchment, wool, milk, cheese, eggs, poultry, mutton, beans, carrots, and parsnips are sold here to passing caravas or by traders coming from Arabel hoping to make a good bargain.

It's also here you can find temporary shrines being set up by various traveling priests for no more than 3 days, by order of Lord Tessaril Winter.

06 - Ebbard Highsong, Butcher

Shop, Service

Only one of three shops lined up to the market square, this solid brick building has a magnificent facade backed by a smokehouse that has almost fallen into ruin.

The butcher Ebbard Highsong is widely respected as a skillful butcher who is so adept that he can butcher and hang something as large as a bull in a few minutes. His skill reaches beyond mere butchering as he is also able to identify most creatures from bones, a handful of hair or scraps of hide, and sometimes even a bit of meat. How he came to possess such a remarkable skill is not something he is willing to talk about, but many adventurers and Crown investigators have found his talents very useful.

Ebbard works almost nonstop at spring lambing and the fall slaughter. His prices are very reasonable for both rav meats and finished produce. He sells quite a few well seasoned and smoked sheep sausages that can keep well for months.

The Old Boot - Wagonmaker and harness shop

07 - The Old Boot - Wagonmaker and harness shop

Shop, Service

The fat, greedy merchant Arbold Tethyr owns and operates three businesses, The Old Boot, a rooming house and a hardware store. He is very fond of acquiring more wealth and it shows as Arbold’s prices are steep, but to his credit, his skilled workers can do very quick wagon or harness repairs and custom jobs inside a tenday.

He can even modify a wagon for a new, personalized look in four days or less.

Minor repair cost 25g and 40gp for something a little more serious, but even as it might be a little steep merchants pay it grudengly as his repairs are swift.

Arbold wisely leaves his 5 workers to get on with things, confining himself to his role as merchant and making money. For an extra fee, Arbold’s employees create small hiding places in a wagon. This service typically costs 25 to 50 gp per niche, depending on its size.

Orsborg is also an expert perfumer. His sense of smell and knowledge of them is so good that he is often called upon to identify obscure scents by the crown, slighted husbands, and adventurers. It costs about 6 gp for this service but only if he can identify the smell. .

The 28 priests under Belon include the wary sarcastic Jelde Asturien, a retired Knight of Myth Drannor who serves as the temple's secular liaison.

Among his other duties, he tries to uncover fraud and misuse of Lathander’s bounty by keeping an eye on folk who’ve taken temple money to aid them in their ventures. Jelde and his fellow senior priests command several powerful magical items and a willing work force of 170 resident lay followers.

They run a very successful farm that produces herbs, nuts, plants for use in scents and medicines, and enough food to see to all village and temple needs.

The temple feeds and houses guests of most good and neutral faiths for a nightly fee. Healing services are performed unstintingly, but the fees are steep enough to see the entire temple through a lean decade, not just a bad year!

The House of the Morning - Temple Granaries

12 - Temple Granaries

Always guarded by a few lay followers of Lathander. One is always equipped with a signal horn in case of trouble and blowing it will quickly bring the clergy and the local Purple Dragons.

The House of the Morning -Temple fields

13 - Temple fields

Temple fields, wheat and vegetables grown by and for clergy

14 - Pillar Rock


Pillar Rock is a strange rock formation that sticks out of the otherwise flat hill in northwestern Eveningstar.

It is a local landmark and, due to the view it affords of the Eastern Storm Horns, a popular date spot.

At the base of Pillar Rock is the entrance to, what most expect, an old tomb. The entrance to the tomb has been caved in as long as anyone can remember and no one has ever tried to dig it out in fear of disturbing the dead.

The only thing visible is the outer portal frame, which is so weathered that the few markings still visible are impossible to decipher.

Redhand Pool

15 -Redhand Pool

A popular fishing spot for the locals and often used for swimming by kids and adults in sommer as the Starwater river's flow is slowed greatly on the banks.

16 - Deltar’s Mill

Service, Shop

This large mill stands on the Starwater’s west bank below Redhand Pool (the mill’s millpond) and it's the most northerly of Eveningstar’s buildings.

The mill is accompanied by a comfortable house with a large vegetable garden and a raised grain warehouse and is the home of Deltar Tummarlin.

All grain and flour crops from the surrounding farmers are grinded as his mill and besides being a well respected miller he is also a great baker and is rightly so famous for his onion loaves. These foot-long, broad loaves are generously spiced with cumin, leeks, and onion. They’re yours for 1 cp each, and they’re best eaten right out the oven with your drippings of choice.

The Mill is also well known to be haunted by the phantom of a noble lady who drowned here in times past. A lot of the local men have seen her at night as she has a tendency to follow men who have recently visited the mill.

She is always seen dripping wet, in a clingy fine dress, walks up to her victim and as she is giving him a damp, chilly embrace she says in a low voice “you are not my lord” and then vanishes.

Several people have reported that her embrace gifted them with the power to detect undead around them for a month and some even say they had dreams that can only be described as visions of warning.

Deltar and others have tried to investigate why the haunting is happening but it remains a mystery, and Deltar does not want the ghost to be harmed and gets really furius if anyone attempts to harm the lady.

Currently he only has a small and somewhat pricey selection of armor to sell, as most of his work has been commissioned by the Purple Dragons.

He is known to provide gleaming everbright treatment to plate armor on orders made by the nobles or wealthy patrons who can afford it.

He also has a lucrative sideline production of pewter pots cast by his apprentices when they have some spare time.

The smithy is known to locals to be protected by several magical swords that hang near the loft and can, if the right command is given, fly down and attack any intruder, something that has happened more than Dhurthal has ever hoped.

The Golden Unicorn Inn

19 - The Golden Unicorn Inn


The Golden Unicorn Inn is run by Selda Imyara and her two daughters.

They have made this backstreet inn a cozy, quiet place that despite the troubles on the road going through and from Eveningstar, normally is full of people willing to pay a little extra for the comfort and good hearty food it provides.

Some of its rooms have their own entrances directly to the outside giving some discretion for patrons who need no praying eyes.

"FOR HIRE: One Adventuring Band. Bold and capable. No job too small. Discretion guaranteed. Charter has been approved! Contact Cargoth at the Low Lantern."

Baskar Lendo produces a newspaper called the Cormyr Clarion, which is a single sheet broadsheet paper. It contains a variety of interesting content for readers, including current gossip and happenings in Eveningstar, information about upcoming local sales and events, and a column with salacious rumors. The paper is a good source of information about the community and can be entertaining to read, with snide comments that are worth the 2-cp cost on their own. The cryptic messages can be placed for a fee (typically 5 gp per message)in the column allowing people to communicate with each other without revealing their business to everyone else. For example, a message might read: "Randor says the silverbeak's flown from its nest at last."

Old Meg's Hut

31 - Old Meg's Hut


Old Meg's Hut was a local home that was associated with a "hag" and was avoided by many people due to its reputation as an "evil" place. The hut burned down approximately 20 years ago and only the ashes, fallen timbers, and blackened flagstones of the floor remained. However, about three months ago, a tiefling named Margrest of the Shadowlands appeared and claimed to be the heir to the plot of land and everything on it. After presenting what seemed to be official documents of ownership, Margrest hired a group of workers and built a new hut on the same plot of land.

People in the town are curious about Margrest and her intentions, as she is an unusual looking person with black skin that takes on a purplish hue, two horns on her head, and shadows that seem to stretch towards her. Margrest keeps mostly to herself, so rumors about her have started to circulate, ranging from the harmless to the hurtful. It is not clear from the information provided what Margrest's motivations are for moving to this town or what she plans to do with the hut.
