Scornubel is a sprawling city along the north shore of the River Chionthar, which flows east to west (to Elturel, Baldur’s Gate and the Sea of Swords). At the eastern edge of the city, the River Reaching flows from out of the north and merges with the Chionthar. Both caravans and river craft provide much trade which is the life blood of the city. In the center of the city, a citadel of paladins, visible from most points of the city, provide a constant reminder of the rule of law. There is no bridge over the River Chionthar or the River Reaching in this vicinity.
