Dustpawn is a small town in eastern Isger, about 7 miles from the Conerica River and close to the border with Druma, and was founded in 4324 AR.[1]

History

Once a prosperous mining community, the iron lodes near Dustpawn played out early in Cheliax's rule over Isger. The town's inhabitants subsequently transitioned to the raising of goats, which remains their main source of revenue.[2]

Many residents are wary of magic and religion due to the charlatan Pristis Derlancy, who posed as a priest of Abadar to extort the town's residents early in its history.[1]

Geography

The town sits high in the Five Kings Mountains of Isger, close to the border with Druma and near the source of the Conerica River. The plentiful tunnels from the old iron mines now provide shelter for bootleggers, smugglers, and other outlaws, and occasionally goblin tribes and larger creatures.[2]

Economy

Dustpawn's economy relies almost entirely on the domestication of goats, and supplies their meat, hides, butter, cheese, and even dung to nearby settlements in Isger and Druma.[2] Many of Dustpawn's goat farmers are Goaters—members of a cooperative business arrangement that handles the town's goat herding and selling. Their co-op operates from the Goatyards along Dustpawn's northern border, and many nearby residents complain about its stench.[1]

The town also serves as a smuggling nexus between Isger and Druma, led by smuggler and rabble-rouser Elladas Demos and fronted by her successful goat-hide leather shop, Demos Leather Goods. Bandits use nearby abandoned mines to store their illicit goods.[1]
