Forgotten Realms Artifact Hunters: Reassembling The Avatar of Torm
Capital City; Population 75,000
By far the largest city in Turmish, Alaghôn was founded in –37 DR by Chondathan settlers as a mercantile trading post on the Sea of Fallen Stars. It became one of the Inner Sea’s busiest ports, but all that ended when the sea withdrew. The Turmian merchant fleet never completely recovered. Though Alaghôn still enjoys a reasonable standard of living, it’s not nearly the boomtown it was a century past. Boarded-up buildings and shabby storefronts mar the streets.
Alaghôn’s curious architecture is the result of the Chondathan humans building over existing structures left by a previous dwarven civilization. The dwarves also left an abandoned mine beneath the city streets. This maze of subterranean tunnels has never been fully explored.
