Princes of the Apocalypse
This fortified city commands the most northerly wagon bridge over the Dessarin River. A walled citadel on the west bank of the river connects to a bridge wide enough to accommodate two wagons with room to spare, connecting the Evermoor Way into and through Yartar. The road leads east to Everlund and Silverymoon, and west to Triboar and eventually Waterdeep via the Long Road.
Yartar is prosperous and increasingly crowded, so buildings have been torn down and taller ones built four stories high in some instances.
A Waterbaron who rules for life leads Yartar. The current Waterbaron is the shrewd, farseeing Nestra Ruthiol (female Tethyrian human noble). Yartar is part of the Lords’ Alliance, and Ruthiol considers that membership vital for its survival and prosperity.
