Around 2003, one of
the PCs in my campaign travelled from Shadowdale south to Mistledale, and then
continued to Battledale. Not knowing how eastern Mistledale looked like, I
decided to elaborate the dale.
My goal, was to have a better understanding of Mistledale's army and
Mistledale's eastern settlements. One of the most important questions that I
had, was, where did the folk of Mistledale live. Mistledale, with a population
of 27,807 inhabitants has a small town with 1,869 inhabitants. But, where are
the rest? And, in what kind of settlements (or communities) do they live? That
is, do Mistrans live in farmsteads, thorps, hamlets, villages, and so on. So, I
decided how many communities there would exist in Mistledale, how many of them
would be found in eastern Mistledale, and then I made detailed maps of eastern
The result of my work was a 3 pages short document about Mistledale, written in
Swedish. The maps, they are in paper. So, I would need to scan them.
Nevertheless, I am updating my homepage with the information that I wrote, and,
will add the maps. Please note that I am working on translating the material to
check out the Elaborating
Mistledale post in the Running the Realms Forum at www.candlekeep.com.
