Bortrend, Harrast and Marder
Largest of these three villages, Bortrend links trade coming down the Trask on small river vessels with roads to Delaric, Kaport Bay, and Luvern. Marder is a farther down river trade village for those craft prepared to risk the predations of folk south of the river, while Harrast links the other villages to Kaport Bay and Luvern. The lands nearby are owned by a number of minor Naelax princelings, who have mostly thrown in their lot with Grenell. Each village has 500 to 900 people, with small detachments of Rakersmen, 40 to 50 in each village.
