A Tempest of Fears Ashenport, a fishing town hunched on an ice-white curve of windfrozen shore on the Sword Coast North, is unremarkable. Luskan, leagues to the southeast, maintains a considerable militia and the shadowy Arcane Brotherhood to defend its walls. Ten-Towns, far and northeast, is a respite for renegades of all kinds, and a hard survivor because of it. Neverwinter, to the south, has the ill legends of Neverwinter Wood to guard it from the depredations of tribes of orc, hobgoblin, and bugbears that boil like plagues of bloody locusts from the Spine of the World. A settlement on the Sword Coast must be hard, well-resourced, and well-defended, in order to endure on this frontier. The towns and cities of the Sword Coast are so. One and all are remarkable. Ashenport, a fishing town standing on an ice-white curve of windfrozen shore on the Sword Coast North, is unremarkable.
