Heroes of the Vale
Brindol (pop. 8,400) is the capital of the Elsir Vale and among the largest cities in the region. Lord Kerdan Jarmaath, an aristocrat and former adventurer, is the current lord of Brindol and the head of the town’s government. Other authority figures include Lady Verrasa Kaal, the leader of the House Kaal mercantile house; Captain Lars Ulverth, captain of the Lions of Brindol; Immerstal the Red, the most powerful mage in the city; and Tredora Goldenbrow, the high priestess of Pelor and the highest religious authority in the town.
The town itself is an old fortress town, with thick walls in various stages of disrepair. The militia is made up of around 800 citizens from the town and its environs, but the real military strength lies with the Lion Guard, the professional army of Lord Jarmaath. The most experienced and talented of the warriors are known as the Lions of Brindol and are the elite guards of Brindol.
The population of Brindol is approximately 80% human, 8% halfling, 5% dwarf, 2% elf, and 15% other races (gnomes, tiefling, dragonborn, etc.). Goblinoids are occasionally seen, but are seldom trusted.
