This city of merchant traders and caravan teams is one of the staunchest supporters of the league of the Silver Marches. This attitude comes as no surprise, however, considering the imminent dangers that threaten the city from all sides.banks of the Rauvin River, Everlund is the second largest city in the Silver Marches and one of its most active mercantile communities. A thick stone wall rings the city, pierced in five places by the city’s gates. Like the spokes of a wheel, broad, straight streets lead from each gate to Bell Market at the city center. The layout of these streets and the location of certain city features, such as the market, many inns, and warehouses, are designed for the accommodation of caravans and their merchants. Soldiers of the city’s standing army make a show of patrolling the walls in strength, both to provide reassurance to citizens and visitors, and to discourage attackers.

Like many of the communities in the Silver Marches, Everlund traces its origins to a time before the ruin of previous civilizations. Since its humble beginnings as a fortified trading outpost and bridgehead on the Rauvin, the city’s population and importance have increased to the point where it is one of the most important trading cities in the Silver Marches, and the North as well. The fact that nearly every single trade caravan that begins its journeys in
the Marches calls at Everlund en route to other destinations brings to the city a position of considerable economic and social importance. The city’s voice carries considerable weight among its peers, for nearly all are dependent to some degree on Everlund’s role as the main caravan station in this region.

Everlund owes its survival to the thickness of its walls (the city’s leaders have never failed to keep its first line of defense in good repair, nor to add to the fortifications whenever possible), some strategic alliances, and its ability to keep Evermoor Way open to caravan traffic. Everlund is one of Silverymoon’s traditional allies and has historically sided with that city and its High Lady on nearly every important issue. The same looks to hold true today,
as the confederation attempts to deal with issues of mutual importance to its signatories. The Council of Elders joined the city with the Lord’s Alliance several decades ago and signed the Silver Marches articles of confederation with eagerness, hopeful of greater security for
its primary trading road.
