Hârn: The Knights of Kaldor
Tashal is a large walled town within Kaldor, and is the third largest settlement on the Island of Harn. Unlike many walled towns or cities, Tashal is a royal domain held by the king, and is not a freetown. That, and the fact that it is not a coastal city, diminishes its cosmopolitan nature to some extent. Still, at the terminus of the Salt Route, as well as being close to the Genin Trail, Silver Way and the fur road, the city does see a considerable number of travelers from across the Island.
Tashal sits atop the ruins of an old stronghold of Lothrin known as Kephal-Anuz. Beneath the city streets there is rumored to be an elaborate system of sewers and tunnels. Tashal is also known to possess a firmly entrenched, and especially vicious chapter of the Lia-Kavair; or thieves guild.
