Daggerford lies along the Shining River on the Sword Coast in the Western Heartlands. The town was strategically placed along the Trade Way and fortified by the local duke’s dwarven-built castle. It was primarily a farming community, but a desire to grow and be seen as an alternative to the northern city Waterdeep caused the town to actively seek craftsmen and artisans. The town took its name from a 400-year-old legend about a boy named Tyndal4 who fended off a tribe of lizardfolk with only a dagger. The first community was built along the shores of the river at that spot. All the Dukes of Daggerford claimed to be descended from Tyndal.
Notable locations in Daggerford include the River Shining Tavern, the Dragonback Inn, Derval’s Bright Blade, Korbus’s Jewels and Fine Ornaments, and Kaladon’s Curiosities.
