Year of the Shadows
AT A GLANCE: Suzail is the royal capital and richest city of the kingdom of Cormyr, and home to the most important merchant houses in the land. The city is dominated by the fortified castle of Queen Tanalesta, which is set apart from the lower city by its splendid gardens, and rumored to have rich burial grounds beneath.
ELMONSTER’S NOTES: The city is justly famous for its bazaars, its ivory sculptors, and cloth makers. Of the former, hundreds of winters of ivory gleaned from the Utter East and hot jungles of the South has found its way across the Inner Sea in great shiploads of raw tusk and fragments, and here been fashioned into inlays and goods for Amn, the North, and the Sword Coast cities. Of the latter, wool is woven as well in the Sembian city of Daerlun, but those who work looms in Suzail hold that their work is finer, and the colors more true and more lasting.
