 +=====Introduction=====
 +
 +This town of about 5,000 is well-situated around a natural bay, and it's built like an amphitheater,​ such that the sea is visible from almost anywhere in Brambletree. ​ The town itself is surrounded by a massive wall of black and grey stone, studded with towers and topped by red and yellow flags flapping in the wind.  Drakes wheel and screech over the glittering harbor. ​ There are street vendors everywhere most days, and quite a lot of guards wearing dark greys and quite a bit of armor.
 +
 +Brambletree was a mediocre, out-of-the-way port since the height of Nerath, but its recent lords have done much to improve its infrastructure and trade. ​ It has flourished in the past decade.
 +
 +Brambletree is run by [[Lord Creum]], who has a Vizier, the Tiefling Snaketail.
 +
 +The town has a large, well-equipped army of about 500 and a robust city watch. ​ Crime is almost non-existent in Brambletree,​ thanks to the stocks and cages in the larger courtyards.
 +
 +=====Organizations=====
 +
 +On a pier sticking out into the bay is the huge stone //Temple of the Waves//​. ​ It is dedicated to Melora and Kord, and run by Cassandra, the High Priestess of Melora, and Sano, the High Priest of Kord.
 +
 +The //Temple of the Wall// in the center of the city is dedicated to Moradin and Erathis, and is run by Cadfael. ​ There are also shrines to all the good gods, and an abandoned temple to Bane.
 +
 +=====Nearby=====
 +
 +There are several dozen farms nearby.
 +
 +There are occasional orc and late-night troglodyte raids, plus plenty of dire creatures.
