-Maelbourg is a walled town in the [[..:​huerten|Barony of Huerten]], with a population of approximately six thousand. Its primary exports are textiles, wool and coal, the last of which it acquires from deposits in the nearby hills. The land on which the town sits was added to Rang in 748, after a year-long struggle with the Morenthians,​ who had no wish to be under Andrithan rule.+Maelbourg is a walled town in the Barony of Huerten, with a population of approximately six thousand.

-Maelbourg is one of two towns in the entire kingdom where [[zioth:​religion:​morenth|Morenthians]] are allowed to live. The other is Haelbourg in the Barony of Elgony. As such, it is populated almost entirely by Morenthians. Andrithans in Maelbourg are second-class citizens at best, though the town would never take direct action against them, while ruled by an Andrithan government.+Maelbourg is one of two towns in the entire kingdom where Morenthians are allowed to live.

 Music plays an important part in the Morenthian religion, so music is pervasive in Maelbourg. It's not uncommon to find groups of people singing on street corners, and the verses of praise sung in the House of Morenth are among the most beautiful in the world. Music plays an important part in the Morenthian religion, so music is pervasive in Maelbourg.

-Maelbourg was bigger than Grenzig. It was not a market day, but people still roamed the streets in large numbers. A peddler or two worked on the side of the roads, and several shops were open. There was a reletively ​large number of horses on the streets, carrying townsmen or the baggage of travelers. There was more sign of human habitation in Maelbourg than any of the adventurers but Sahlman had seen in one place. From the small shacks of artisans to the elegant mansions of townsmen, houses lined every street. In the center of the town, on a hill, was a House of Morenth, surrounded with bath houses and Purification Rooms.+Maelbourg was bigger than Grenzig.

 As many houses as there were, there seemed to be twice as many dirty beggars wandering about. There were actually very few of them, but they made themselves seen. By night, they would likely be joined by thieves and prostitutes. Fortunately,​ there were several inns and taverns in the town where adventurers,​ with their weighty pouches, could easily find a place to stay. As many houses as there were, there seemed to be twice as many dirty beggars wandering about.

-The guilds hold a great deal of power, and on a day-to-day basis, they seem more influential than the House, but no guildmaster would dare cross a priest.

 Due to their political influence, guildmasters are usually referred to as "​Townsman,"​ though not all townsmen are guildmasters. Guild members with less political power are referred to by their standard titles - master, journeyman and apprentice. Due to their political influence, guildmasters are usually referred to as "​Townsman,"​ though not all townsmen are guildmasters.

 Maelbourg has played a prominent role in the campaign. The first visit to Maelbourg was from turn 21 to turn 32. History has been rewritten a little bit since then due to the DM changing his mind. Originally, it wasn't such a Morenth-dominated town. In fact, it was described as being very open to many religions. That's no longer the case. The rumor that came out of this visit was that a powerful healer, possibly an Andrithan, passed through. These rumors were quickly quashed by the priests. Maelbourg has played a prominent role in the campaign. The first visit to Maelbourg was from turn 21 to turn 32.

-The next visit to Maelbourg was by [[zioth:pc:sahlman|Sahlman]] in turn 67. From this visit came the story that some crony of the foreign townsman ​[[zioth:​person:​maelbourg:​galgewe|Galgewe]] attacked townsman ​[[zioth:​person:​maelbourg:​batarel|Batarel]]. This kicked off a lot of the troubles in the town.+The next visit to Maelbourg was by Sahlman in [[zioth:turn:067|turn 67]].

 The third visit was from turn 113 on. An [[zioth:​pc:​ziedon|evil sorcerer]] plagued the town, killing priests and regular businesspeople alike. The third visit was from turn 113 on. An [[zioth:​pc:​ziedon|evil sorcerer]] plagued the town, killing priests and regular businesspeople alike.
