Against the Ice Queen
Saltmarsh was nearly wiped out approximately 40 years ago, when the Scaly Death was carried from Enkelhoffen via the sea trade route. In the years since, it is said that Zargos himself smiles upon Saltmarsh, since he has favored the area with the bounty of the sea. The revitalized fishing industry, in conjunction with a few surrounding farms, host a bi-monthly farmer’s market, which attracts tourists and traders from the surrounding towns for a two day cooking and shopping extravaganza. Some who initially came for the farmers market decided to relocate to Saltmarsh, seduced by the city’s scenic views, quality food and excellent school system.
Several famous adventurers have hailed from Saltmarsh, such as Berthilda Hutchinson, the famous bard who immortalized Saltmarsh in songs such as “Full Moon over the Ethral,” “Widow of Saltmarsh Peak,” as well as other, lesser hits. Irene Egheri, an alchemist of some repute and Lenny Seven Fingers, the fabled pirate captain of times gone by also hail from the area.
