Way of the Wicked
The frontier town of Embryl is located in the Heartlands, though it sits perilously close to the Caer Bryr.
The town was originally set up as a lumbering station centuries ago, but alchemists and herbalists enjoy the region for the exotic flora that can be found in the northern forest. Various small villages and hamlets pocket the southern reaches of the Caer Bryr, but Embryl is the administrative center for these communities.
The people of Embryl pride themselves for their ranging and hunting abilities. They occasionally run afoul of the Iraen tribesfolk but aside from the odd skirmish there have not been any serious incidents in years.
The citizens have proven themselves loyal to House Darius numerous times in the past, most auspiciously during the Battle of Tamberlyn where their archers quite arguably won the day.
