Secrets of Barovia
Daggerford is a town that lay along the Shining River on the Sword Coast in the Western Heartlands. It is a walled town with a population of approximately 900, with a number of outlying hamlets, farms, and estates bringing the population to over 2,000. The town is strategically placed along the Trade Way and fortified by the Duchess Morwen’s dwarven-built castle.
It started off primarily as a farming community, but a desire to grow and be seen as an alternative to the northern city Waterdeep caused the town to actively seek craftsmen and artisans. Morwen is known to hire adventuring parties, knowing that they’ll help bring in influence and power to keep the city growing, attracting even more craftsmen.
Morwen had sent the party a couple of hours south to deal with a Vistani camp, although she did not know they were called that.
