Garentor

See Garentor Map (Zoom out to see full map).

Located on the west the Wyre River where Navarene, Draolis and Thaemore meet is. While currently part of Draolis 75 years ago it was considered part of Navarene and 300 years before that it was listed as part of the kingdom of Thaemor. The transfer of the city between Droalis and Navarene was to settle a conflict between the two powers, part of the agreement is that a Nobel families from Navarene were allowed to continued ownership of part of the village.

Day to day activity is ran by the mayor however the real power rests in the 4 major merchant families as they make all local laws and decisions, majority rules for the houses and in case of tie the Mayor casts the deciding vote.

The town has a population of about 2500 mostly focused on trade it has the shortest and safest roads from Kordech to the Wyre River and most trade traveling from the river to the north of Draolis to and from Thaemore will travel through the town. Wealth varies greatly in the town, the nobel enclaves are some of the wealthiest people in Draolis outside of the major cities, but the vast majority of people here are farmers and sailors.
