The Dark Edge
Malbrog is a small town west of Brillmore. It is between the Haven Woods and the Darkpeak Cliffs, and as such is a hotspot for travelers going into or out of Brillmore. Because of the difficult terrain that surrounds it, Malbrog is not a large town, and has rather small facilities, though it has a moderately sized bazaar area for merchants to sell good and services on their way through.
Originally the town was formed as a settlement by travelers that needed a place to stay, and eventually grew out of that as more and more people worked together to create a glorified pit stop between the city and the wilderness. Soon, the town was constructed with funding from Brillmore, and the people vowed to let it operate as a free market, not under control by any one individual. However, the lord of Brillmore, Jeskin Glimmerhawk, does send representatives to the town at times to ensure everything is running smoothly, and pays the small force of guards to keep the town safe.
