Hanging by a Thread
North of Waterdeep.
Horses are bred and trained here, rich Waterdhavians maintain secluded estates in the hills, and farmland is plentiful. Stands of dark duskwood and spruce trees are everywhere. In one corner of the town square stands the Great Shalarn, a black stone statue of a famous war stallion bred in Amphail long ago. Near the statue is the Stag-Horned Flagon, a cozy tavern run by Arleosa Starhenge.
The three Waterdhavian families with the most influence in Amphail are Houses Amcathra, Ilzimmer, and Roaringhorn.
Current Lord Warder of Amphail is Dauner Ilzimmer, a bombastic family man who loves horses more than he does most people.
Amphail is a member of the Lord’s Alliance and enjoys the protection of Waterdeeps city guard.
